Research Focus

The Jorgensen lab uses cell and molecular biology tools to identify genes that are sexually dimorphic during sex differentiation, characterize their functional significance, and finally, understand how they are regulated.  Currently, we are focusing on two genes: steroidogenic factor 1 (Sf1) and Iroquois homeobox factor 3 (Irx3).
