Innovating massively parallel genomic technologies and applying to understand how the plasma membrane functions in all cells
Addressing new questions in biology requires the invention of new ways to interrogate biological systems. Research in the CGSI is innovating through invention and application, with a focus on single-molecule DNA applications (Schwartz Lab) and mass spectrometry-based methods to interrogate molecules including proteins, RNAs, lipids, and metabolites (Coon, Smith, and Sussman Labs).
