Project Title: 
Transposon- and Repetitive Sequence-Triggered Expansion of Heterochromatin

This lab seeks to identify cis-acting sequences that trigger establishment of heterochromatin and the genomic locations that are susceptible to transposon-triggered conversion of euchromatin to heterochromatin. The researchers use bioinformatics approaches to identify candidate chromatin regulators on the basis of their structure, age, and rate of evolution.
