1. 研究方向/Research Direction:
We combine high-throughput quantitative experiments with mathematical modeling to determine how phenotypes are encoded in DNA, why antibiotics kill some cells but not others, and why some cells, but not others, will evolve drug resistance.
2. Research Area: single-cell analysis, evolution, drug resistance, transcription, cell growth and division
