Research Interest:

Mechanisms of epigenetic gene regulation by DNA methylation

Our lab studies epigenetic gene regulation in plants and animals.  The work focuses on modifications of chromatin including cytosine DNA methylation, histone modifications, and the role of non-coding RNAs in gene regulation. About 70% our effort is aimed at using Arabidopsis thaliana as a model genetic system to study how conserved epigenetic modifications function in gene silencing and activation.  The other 30% is focused on mouse and human epigenetic regulation.  Current efforts are aimed at understanding mechanisms of RNA directed DNA methylation, the action of the conserved MORC proteins in gene silencing processes in plants and animals, and antisilencing mechanisms that function to oppose silencing mechanisms.  We also have a program focused on targeting various epigenetic modifications using CRISPR systems.  The main approaches we use are genetic screens, genomics and bioinformatics, and biochemistry and structural biology.
