The Genome Regulation Group is a mixed group of experimental and computational biologists that uses genomic tools to study developmental and stem cell biology with a particular interest in the role of epigenetic regulation. Their work utilizes early mouse development as well as various mouse and human stem cell paradigms to dissect basic molecular mechanisms including the role of DNA methylation and other epigenetic modifications in gene and genome regulation.
