    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Regulation of genome access underlies growth, development, differentiation, and disease states including tumor initiation. Genome access is regulated by dynamic chromatin landscapes. We want to uncover fundamental mechanisms that shape chromatin landscapes by mapping chromatin structure at high temporal and spatial resolution using new experimental and/or computational methods. This research program in chromatin biology is at the intersection of genomics, biochemistry, and structural biology.
