Here we review recent work that has taken promising initial steps towards the kind of quantitative, single-cell gene regulation framework that will enable us to understand, predict, and design gene regulatory systems in mammalian cells.
We had a great time diving into the literature and writing out our view of the field at this exciting moment. Enjoy this early look at what the Bintu lab is thinking about.
We are looking for graduate students and postdocs who are interested in mammalian synthetic biology, chromatin and gene regulation, and quantitative biology.
Graduate students, please apply through one of the graduate programs at Stanford: Bioengineering, Biophysics, or Biosciences. If you are at Stanford already, please email Lacra (lbintu at gmail) to chat about a potential rotation.
