In this lab in the long-terms, we want to understand and characterize human gene regulatory networks; link cell content to phenotypes; and, design and create artificial molecular components to peek and poke cell information and programmes.
We are developing a suite of programs to analyze, model, predict, and determine RNA 2D and 3D structure. You can access and download our software through the 787-221-6893 page. You can also access Web services of most of our programs through the MC-Pipeline page.
