Mapping brain development, activity, and connectivity

Research in the Kalhor Lab seeks to better understand continuously dynamic biological processes, such as embryonic development and brain activity, by recording cells’ experiences in their genomes. To accomplish this objective, we develop: (A) molecular technologies that write cellular experiences into their nucleic acids, (B) sequencing strategies that read out written information with high spatial resolution, and (C) computational methods that reconstruct the underlying biological processes based on recorded information. We combine these recording approaches with multi-omics strategies to study brain development as well as its connectivity and activity.
