A central question of epigenome research is how chromatin or DNA binding proteins interact with one another to switch genes on or off at the right time point to establish and maintain a healthy cellular state. Our group investigates the dynamics and wiring of chromatin regulators, as well as the induced transcriptional output under different conditions using state-of-the-art functional genetic tools (RNAi or CRISPR/Cas9) with cell biology methods and biochemical assays.
