Research Interests:

Dr. Hoodless’ laboratory uses state of the art genomic technologies to shed new light on classical processes in developmental biology. They are exploring regulatory mechanisms in heart and gastrointestinal tract development in the mouse embryo using genome-wide analysis of gene expression at the tissue and single cell level, transcription factor binding, and histone modifications. Specifically, Dr. Hoodless explores the epigenetic controls of gene expression driving differentiation, with three main areas of focus: 1. liver differentiation, 2. heart valve formation, and 3. organogenesis in the definitive endoderm, including signaling and transcriptional regulation of the midgut.
