My lab studies germline epigenetics. Using plant male germlines as models, our main focus is to elucidate the mechanism and biological significance of germline epigenetic reprogramming. We are also interested in how somatic nurse cells communicate with the germline, how the environment affects fertility, and how environment-induced epigenetic memories are transmitted or erased in germlines.
