About the Cherry Lab

Our research involves identifying, validating and integrating scientific information into encyclopedic databases essential for investigation as well as scientific education.  Published results of scientific experimentation are a foundation of our understanding of the natural world and provide motivation for new experiments.  Curation, extraction and sorting of factual experimental data, of peer-reviewed journal articles are necessary to acquire these data from its source.  Large quantitative datasets using global studies extend our knowledge of genes and their functions, and the organization of chromatin and its impact on development and gene expression.  By integrating quantitative datasets with curated focused experimental results creates unique comprehensive databases.  The Cherry Lab creates such essential databases and makes them available to scientists and educators seeking to understand experimental results and to teach scientific knowledge.
