WELCOME TO THE WONG LAB
Regulatory Systems and Evolution
We are an interdisciplinary genetics research lab. Our goal is to understand the regulation of the genome, and the genetic and epigenetic processes underlying organism form and function.
Our lab is particularly interested to understand how cis-regulatory elements function to control phenotype. We use quantitative biology and in vivo experiments with the goal to understand how traits are encoded in genomes.
Our research interests include:
Deciphering the enhancer code in development
Understanding the impact of non-coding mutations in the heart
Investigating the genetics and epigenetic of ageing
Regeneration and development
