Ross Hardison is the T. Ming Chu Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of The Pennsylvania State University. Ross and his co-workers measure transcriptome profiles and use epigenetic marks (such as transcription factor occupancy and histone modifications) and comparative genomics to predict gene regulatory modules. We test these predictions for function in the laboratory, and work to pull all this together into a more thorough understanding of global regulation during hematopoiesis. The techniques developed and utilized in this research should be applicable to a wide variety of regulated systems and organismal groups.
