Research Interests

The Yachie laboratory aims to understand cancer progression, cell differentiation and mammalian development by creating various synthetic cell systems that allows us high-throughput measurements of protein-protein interactions and cell population dynamics. The technology used in the laboratory include DNA barcodes, high-throughput DNA sequencing, genome editing and computational data mining.
