Blaise Weber focuses on the genome-wide identification of novel enhancer sequences in the maize genome and their subsequent characterisation and validation. Enhancers are non-coding DNA sequences that regulate transcription of their target genes and are necessary to establish the complex and diverse patterns of gene expression of multicellular organisms.
