Welcome to the Mutwil Lab!
The Mutwil lab is located within the School of Biological Sciences at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
We use systems biology to elucidate the function of genes in the plant kingdom. Today, knowledge of gene function is mostly confined to Arabidopsis thaliana, the main model organism in plant research, which limits our understanding of the plant kingdom. To remedy this, we are characterising also other plant species in terms of genomics, gene expression, metabolomics and protein-protein interaction networks. Based on this biological data we can then predict gene function with state-of-the-art network ensemble methods and other dry-lab techniques. This knowledge is important to understand plants and to tailor them to our needs.
