A new scientist joins our lab!

Welcome Jumana Alhaj Abed! Jumana is a postdoc interested in the intricacies of everything biology! She will be trying to understand the mechanisms of homolog pairing using super-resolution microscopy.

Welcome new pioneer Nuno Martins!

A new pioneer joins the lab, Nuno Martins, bringing the topic of centromeres with him! He will attempt to break new ground by visualizing (neo)centromere folding and topology by super-resolution microscopy, for the first time in-situ, in several different species.

Eric’s recent review on homolog pairing just published in Current Opinion in Genetics & Development.

Eric, Jelena, and Ting just published a new review discussing homolog pairing and anti-pairing in diploid genomes. You can check it out here

Lab's collaboration paper!! 

We are excited to announce that our collaborative paper together with Sunyaev and Gimelbrandt labs on monoallelic expression in humans has been recently published in Nature Genetics.

New super-resolution paper has been published in Nature!

Our recent collaborative paper together with Mirny and Zhuang labs on super-resolution imaging of different epigenetic states just recently got published in Nature.

Ting and Brian were interviewed for the most recent Oligopaints paper!

Ting and Brian were interviewed by Harvard Medical School to showcase the Oligopaints technology, and the most recent advances in looking at DNA with super resolution detail, as well as discriminate them based on parental origin.  You can find their interviews and videos here!

Welcome the new guy in town, Guy Nir!

Hailing from a pedigree of biophysics, our new postdoctoral fellow Guy Nir aims to uncover the underlying order that governs the structure of chromatin.  Like other successful pioneers, Guy will be documenting his quests in his own online lab notebook, which you can follow here.


Brian's paper on Super Resolution OligoPaints has been published in Nature Communications!

Brian's breakthrough paper on using Oligopaints to look at the structure of the genome with super resolution has been published in Nature Communications ("Single-molecule super-resolution imaging of chromosomes and in situ haplotype visualization using Oligopaint FISH probes").  This was the product of several successful collaborations, and it enables us to look at DNA with unprecedented detail.
