Beyond Broad and Narrow Promoters

Gene expression is a complicated trait -- it encompasses far more than just expression level. In a recent collaboration out of the Furlong lab, we take a look at genetic variation influencing not only expression level, but also transcriptional start site and, interestingly, transcriptional noise.

Our paper on genetic and environmental contributions to gene expression variation in an increasingly acidic ocean is now online!


You can find more of this sort of work at the website for Dan's lab at UC Davis

Congrats to Enrico, Nils, and Dermot on the publication of their analysis of genetic variants influencing developmental gene expression profiles!
