transcriptional gene regulatory networks, GRN, distal enhancers, histone, H2A.Z, developmental poten

Research Area

We study developmental gene regulatory mechanisms and their evolution. We use sea urchins and a new polychaete model system. The emphasis is on transcriptional gene regulatory networks (GRNs) (Peter and Davidson, 2015) and we combine gene-targeted and genome-wide approaches.
