The regulation of gene expression in response to developmental or environmental stimuli is a crucial mechanism in all organisms. We are fascinated by the question how transcription is regulated at the level of enhancer and core-promoter DNA elements, and the transcription factor and cofactor proteins that mediate transcription activation. We use genome-wide functional assays, bioinformatics, and mass-spectrometry; and develop highly-controllable reporter assays that provide direct functional readouts. Our goal is to understand transcription and – ultimately – how transcriptional networks define cellular and developmental programs.
