Research Summary
Improvements in the cost and speed of DNA sequencing and synthesis over the past two decades have made the dream of a technological world powered by the information storage and processing capacities of life’s molecular constituents increasingly realizable. Our lab develops technologies that apply both these advances and others in physics and computation to pressing problems in biology and medicine.
