Jay Dunlap uses genetics and molecular biology to study circadian rhythms, beginning in fungi (especially Neurospora) and more recently including mice and mammalian cells in culture. The regulatory architecture of the core of the circadian feedback loop that functions in most cells is largely conserved between fungi and animals. Other interests include fungal genetics, photobiology and high throughput gene knockouts leading to whole genome functional genomics aimed at understanding roles for the ~10,000 genes in the typical fungal genome.
