We research novel mechanisms for biological control in living cells.

Control

We discover and test novel mechanisms to control gene expression in bacteria.

Computation

We experiment with how living cells utilize feedback in complex networks to perform computation.

Learning

We build models to represent computation, adaptation, and memory in living cells.
