Yuri Stephan van Ekelenburg
During my studies I developed a strong interest in epigenetics and how epigenetic modifications are regulated in the cell. During my masters I performed a research project in the EVOGENE group to investigate genomic imprinting of several MADS-Box transcription factors.
For my PhD I continue to work in the field of genomic imprinting and what the role of small RNA is in this process. This work will also focus on the role of small RNA on genomic imprinting of genes in plant hybrids and in the formation of hybrid barriers.
