Bistable and oscillatory dynamics in regulatory networks are essential for patterning, cell proliferation, and cell differentiation in biological systems. My lab takes an interdisciplinary approach (theory and experiment; physics and biology; synthetic and systems biology) to understand the diverse molecular and evolutionary mechanisms by which thresholds, combinatorial control, bistability, and oscillation have evolved in biological systems.
