Transcriptional repression

Our Focus

Our lab has a long-standing interest in epigenetic gene regulation dictated by chromatin modifications. Main themes are to study the mechanism of stable inherited transcriptional repression by Polycomb-group (Pc-G) protein complexes, and the effects of deregulation of Pc-G genes on development, Cell cycle control, cancer formation and stem cell maintenance. In addition, we are performing large-scale genetic screens in primary cells and in cancer-predisposed mice to identify cancer-relevant combinations of collaborating oncogenes and tumor-suppressor genes.
