Areas of Interest and Expertise

Single-Cell Genomics and Function
Biophysics of DNA-Protein Interaction

Research Summary

Research in Blainey's group centers on the integration of new microfluidic, optical, and molecular tools for applications in biology and medicine. Focus areas include the evolution and population genetics of microbes, multiparametric functional analyses of heterogeneous groups of cells, and the biophysics of protein-DNA interactions. We emphasize quantitative single-cell and single-molecule approaches, aiming to integrate different datatypes and analytical methods to reveal the workings of natural and engineered biological systems across a range of scales.
