My group investigates how regulatory genes, including lncRNAs, orchestrate organ development in the mouse embryo. In particular we are interested in the organization of trunk and tail development and focus on the genetic and epigenetic control of lineage decisions taken in the descendants of stem/progenitor cells. Another research topic of my lab is the genetic basis of non-Mendelian inheritance revealed by the mouse t-haplotype.
