In a nutshell, epigenetics is additional information layered on top of our genetic code—information that determines how that genetic code is used. It tells a liver cell to do liver things and a brain cell to do brain things.Read More
CEEHRC Network experts answer the question,
"what is epigenetics?"
Transposable elements are DNA sequences that "jump" through the genome. They're usually silenced through epigenetic processes but still play a vital role.
The regulation of gene expression by transcription enhancers is critical for cellular identity and the observable difference between species.
Dr. Minggao Liang's research is focused on elucidating the cis-regulatory consequences of genetic variation in the context of evolution and human disease.
