Andrew W. Murray

Herchel Smith Professor of Molecular Genetics
Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology
Director of FAS Center for Systems Biology

We use budding yeast in three different ways: 1) to experimentally evolve novel traits, such as multicellularity and circadian clocks, 2) to test our understanding of interesting biological traits by trying to engineer them, and 3) to dissect the regulation of cell biologically interesting processes like polarization, energy homeostasis, and the regulation of the cell cycle....
