Jasper Rine’s current research interests include the epigenetic inheritance of transcriptional states in Saccharomyces, cofactor remedial genetic variation in humans, and the genetic basis of some common birth defects. Rine developed a new approach to teaching introductory biology lab classes that makes the experience more similar to a true research experience, demands the use of mathematical tools for analysis of large data sets, and better integrates biology with the principles that the students are leaning from their chemistry and physical studies.
