The microbiome is the community of microorganisms—mostly bacteria but also fungi and archaea—that live and grow in and on our bodies. And we carry many, many microbial passengers.
The Cheng lab develops technologies based on artificial DNA and RNA binding proteins and applies them to sense or induce sequence or epigenetic changes at target genomic loci or target transcripts.
Researches the genetics underlying behavior and identifies relationships among behavioral traits.
