The main focus of my research is to understand the relationship between genotype and phenotype. Despite the progress in genomics over the last decades we still cannot accurately predict the impact of genetic variation in human health in the vast majority of cases. One of the key factors explaining our current lack of understanding of this question is that we mostly focus on different aspects of molecular biology separately. On their own, each of these layers of molecular information only answers a small part of our questions. I believe that a systems perspective integrating them, from protein and chromatin structure to gene and protein expression, is the approach that will be able to answer most of the critical questions in molecular biology over the next decade.
