Epigenetics in Drosophila

Epigenetics, the study of heritable changes in gene function occurring without a change in the DNA sequence, is a major new field in life sciences. We have molecularly identified a number of modifiers of position-effect variegation in Drosophila, and in particular we have examined Su(var)3-7 and its partners.

Keywords: Drosophila / chromosome / chromatin / position effect variegation

Subject area(s): Chromatin & Transcription | Development
