Population Epigenomics and Mechanisms of Epigenetics

Flowertrack

Research Overview

We are interested in determining how phenotypic plasticity and diversity are driven by natural and spontaneous epigenetic variation. Systematically identifying these epialleles using epigenomic approaches, understanding their patterns of heritability, their interaction with genetic variants and their specific roles in controlling gene expression is necessary for a comprehensive understanding of genome evolution and its effect on phenotypic variation.
