Generating, Analyzing, and Understanding Sensory and Sequencing Information

Faculty Advisers

erin-nErin Osborne Nishimura, Assistant Professor
Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
Erin Nishimura and her lab are interested in understanding how gene expression is regulated during embryogenesis and how it impacts eventual cell fate. They use a combination of computational and experimental approaches in the model nematode worm, Caenorhabditis elegans. Of particular interest, they use single-cell RNA-seq and single-molecule quantitative microscopy to assess the entire transcriptome and to zoom in on individual mRNA transcripts in worms.
