How does a single genetic blueprint give rise to the trillions of highly specialized cells in a human being? To carry out this amazing feat, our cells have an array of proteins – collectively referred to as “epigenetic machinery” – that layer epigenetic information on top of the genetic blueprint. Our lab uses genomic approaches to understand how epigenetic machinery works, and what happens when it malfunctions.
Our laboratory is committed to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for staff and trainees. Please read a full statement on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) from the laboratory’s director, below.
