Bomyi is interested in regulation of chemical kinetics in biological systems, especially in understanding how inherently stochastic gene expression dynamics are “tamed” to produce reliable cellular outcomes. A precise control of dynamic gene activity is important in preventing mis-regulation that could cause serious developmental defects. The lab uses combination of molecular experiments, quantitative live imaging, kinetic modeling and other fundamental engineering principles to obtain spatio-temporal control of gene activity. These interdisciplinary studies will provide important insights to general gene-expression phenomena that underlie development, metabolism, and disease.
