About Korf Lab

Welcome!

This is the website for Ian Korf's research group at the Genome Center, UC Davis. Since 2004 we have been developing bioinformatics solutions to help tackle problems - both large and small - in the fast-moving field of genomics. Much of the research in our lab builds on collaborations with others, both at UC Davis and also further afield.

The diverse nature of our activities can often make it seem like that there is very little in common between all of our different research projects. However, the one thing that unites all of our work is our desire to produce tools and to provide analyses that help make sense of DNA and protein sequences, and which help turn those sequences into stories.

Explore this site to find out more about what we do, about the people in our lab, and the software tools and data that are available for you to use.

The Korf Lab, 1st October 2012.

New: January 2014

Version 2.1 of the IMEter has now been released. Version 2.0 allowed you to only test Arabidopsis thaliana introns to see if they might enhance gene expression. In version 2.1 you can now test introns from over 30 different plant species. All code is now available via GitHub as well.
