A weekend away with a book of poetry, a mountain biking holiday, or perhaps a daring jewel heist……whatever your idea of a fun weekend is, a well-laid out, precise set of instructions usually help; in short, you need a plan! In the gastrulating mouse embryo, precise epigenomic and transcriptomic instructions dictate the differentiation of pluripotent […]

Dr. Ellen Rothenberg from the California Institute of Technology discusses her lab’s research into the epigenetics of T-cell development at the 2019 joint CEEHRC/IHEC meeting.
Dr. John Greally from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine discusses his group’s research into the epigenomics of human health at the 2019 joint CEEHRC/IHEC meeting.
The Jurassic Park movies got the whole world excited about resurrecting dinosaurs from fossilized DNA, but more recent findings that the half-life of DNA is only 521 years mean that dream is science fiction. So, while the finer details of dinosaur genomes may be lost in the fossil record, new work has dug up epigenomic […]
While the DNA editing function of CRISPR/Cas9 systems may appear to hog the limelight, we believe that a new SunTag approach for CRISPR/Cas9-mediated induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) reprogramming via epigenome editing deserves its day in the sun! The exciting reprogramming strategy utilizes an endonuclease dead Cas9 (dCas9) fused to a repetitive protein scaffold known […]
