Welcome to Michael Eisen's lab in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) at University of California at Berkeley (UCB) and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL). We are part of the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology of UCB and the Genomics Division of LBNL, and the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences. We are located in Stanley Hall on the Berkeley campus. Our lab applies computational and experimental genomic approaches to study how genome sequences specify organismal form and function. We are particularly interested in the regulation of gene expression, and focus on how the information that specifies when and where genes are expressed is encoded in genome sequences, the role that regulated gene expression plays in animal development and the response of microbes to their environments, and how variation in and evolution of gene expression contributes to phenotypic variation and the remarkable diversity of life on Earth. This site contains a more detailed description of our research projects, an introduction to members of the lab, reprints of all of our publications, free downloadable and web-based software for the analysis of genome sequences and DNA microarray data, and other useful links and information.
Free and open to the university community and the public
