Molecular and stem cell biology
On July 7, 2000, David Haussler and his team launched the first working draft of the Human Genome on the internet, ensuring that it would remain in the public domain forever. The Haussler-Salama “wet lab” has been devising innovative experimental approaches using pluripotent stem cells, genome-wide measurements of gene expression and gene regulatory activity, and CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing approaches to understand how recent genome evolution contributes to human development and disease.
