Outline

It is important to know the relationships between genes and biological functions because defective genes cause various diseases. I will develop a novel optogenetic method to induce heritable random mutations in a particular gene or a subset of genes. By applying this approach to forward genetic screens, I will reveal novel genes and genetic interactions functioning in the nervous system.
