What defines the identity of a cell? How is the same genetic code used to build more than 200 different cell types with distinct physiological and morphological properties? These big questions drive our enthusiasm for deciphering how genetic and epigenetic information is processed into different gene expression programs.

The research groups in the GBE division each address a different part of this fundamental problem, and bring together complementary approaches and ways of thinking. Click on the three individual labs below to learn more about our research, group members and publications.
