Drosophila sensory neurons tile the larval body wall, Dr. Chun Han


Faculty in the Genetics Interest Group are dedicated to the training of graduate students in modern molecular, developmental, and medical genetics. The research interests of this group combine the related interests and research efforts in genetics of both basic science and clinical faculty. The faculty is engaged in diverse research issues studying gene expression, differentiation and development, chromosome structure and mechanics, structure of the human genome, human biochemical genetics, radiation genetics, and cytogenetics. They study an equally diverse group of organisms, including tumor viruses, bacteria, yeast, fruit flies, nematodes, mice, and humans.
