My lab studies how chromosomes are organized within the three-dimensional space of the nucleus, and, in particular, how physical interactions between chromosomes can influence gene expression. We focus on Drosophila melanogaster in part because of the amazing genetic tools available, and in part because there is extensive pairing between homologous chromosomes in this system, providing us with a simple model to study interchromosomal interactions. Some of our projects branch out into the development of new genetic technologies and resources for the Drosophila research community.
