The chromatome team focuses on epigenetic regulation in embryonic stem cells and cancer.
The main interest in our lab is to understand how gene activity is regulated by local composition (histone modifications and variants), chromatin structure and nuclear organisation. We uniquely combine in vitro and in vivo approaches to study these epigenetic mechanisms during in embryonic stem cell differentiation, in cancer cells and after exposure to drugs.
*The Chromatin Biology group will move to the Medical Faculty, UiO in January 2019.
