Get up close and personal with some of the world's top epigenetics and non-coding RNA thought leaders.
Dr. Jerry Workman discusses the questions surrounding the preservation of histone marks, and the balance between histone turnover and transgenerational inheritance. The Dynamic Histone Code I think one of the most exciting things for me that’s being approached in the field more recently is how are histone marks preserved? We talk about these things carrying […]
Dr. Henikoff discusses some of the gaps in our understanding of transcription and chromatin that still need to be filled in. The Unknowns of RNA Polymerase-Nucleosome Interactions Well, you would think with so much work done on the relationship between transcription and chromatin, the fact that there’s so many meetings on it and all. We […]
Dr. Robert Waterland discusses how 3′ CpG island methylation may function as a key developmental activator of gene expression. This interview was shot at the Keystone Symposia’s meeting on Nutrition, Epigenetics and Human Disease, 2013 held in Santa Fe, New Mexico 3′ CpG Island Methylation in Gene Activation Another really interesting project thatI’ve been involved with […]
Dr. Frank Grosveld discusses distal interactions in the genome and how these might be less directed than generally thought. Long Distance Relationship in the Genome Well, I’m most excited about something that I have been working on for a long time. Which is basically how bits of the genome interact with each other. So we […]
