The Bejerano Lab at Stanford University is working to understand the role of cis-regulation in the development and evolution of the placenta, which is an understudied organ that has arisen in the mammalian clade. Misregulation of genes during placentation can lead to a number of disorders, including preeclampsia, premature birth, and other common birth defects.
