We study gene regulatory mechanisms by means of computational modeling. To facilitate our data-centric approach, we develop novel methods for analyzing large amounts of biological data, including those produced by cutting-edge high-throughput experiments. Our computational models provide a systematic way to investigate the functional effects of different types of perturbations to regulatory mechanisms, which creates testable hypotheses for studying human diseases and facilitates translational research.
