Enhancer Biology lab studies gene regulation and genome architecture controlled by transcription factors using genome-wide functional genomics methods. Our aim is to understand enhancer malfunction and genome plasticity in distinct tissue- and organ-specific cancer types using an unbiased genome-wide approach. We employ a novel cellular transformation assay for identifying cancer-specific regulatory features and gene networks with an ultimate goal of understanding the genesis of cancer.
We are always interested to hear from motivated students for thesis or researchers. Please contact.
