We have realized that beyond DNA carrying the genomic code, its packaging into the nucleus as chromatin provides a major source of information. How this info is imposed, changed and inherited is a focus of epigenetics. Our team is interested in the dynamics of this organization during development and cellular division. How this responds to various environmental conditions and is possibly compromised in various diseases is important to decipher.
