Welcome to the Basan Lab
Quantitative biology on cellular and organism scales
The goal of our lab is to gain a quantitative and predictive understanding of biological systems, beyond individual molecular interactions and circuits, on the level of phenotypes and physiology at the cellular and organism scale.
We use the well-characterized model organisms E. coli and Drosophila melanogaster, to take advantage of a large body of scientific work and vast genetic toolkits. Oftentimes, we address the same questions in different contexts using bacteria and flies.
