Research Summary

In eukaryotic cells, DNA is packaged into chromatin, which allows compact storage of the genome, but limits the access of DNA binding proteins to their targets. As a result, chromatin structure affects virtually all DNA-dependent processes and chromatin regulators are frequently mutated in cancer. However, how chromatin regulation affects cell division and cell-cycle is not well unserstood. We are especially interested in cell quiescence, and are investigating how chromatin regulation affects the entry, maintenance and exit from quiescence.
