Dr. Beck investigates the mechanism of gene regulation at the transcription level, using integrative Big Data Analysis and experimental validations. The lab aims to understand the comprehensive biological mechanisms underlying gene regulation at the transcription level. Undergraduate research fellows in Dr. Beck’s lab will perform the meta-analysis of various Next Generation Sequence data generated by RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, Bis-seq, Hi-C, and ChIA-PET techniques. They will also participate in experiments to detect and visualize the exact location of the specific gene locus within the nucleus.
