We are looking for highly motivated individuals to join our ongoing research projects on chromatin
function and epigenetics in plants. We study regulation of flowering time and stress physiology. Our
projects focus on the function of Polycomb Group proteins and other chromatin modifying protein
complexes. Polycomb Group proteins are major regulators of cell fate and differentiation and have
been implicated in tumor formation in animals. We use forward genetics, biochemistry, molecular
biology and genomics approaches to uncover the molecular mechanisms by which chromatin states affect
gene expression and establish cellular identity. Our approaches involve diverse technologies ranging
from transcriptome and epigenome profiling by next generation sequencing to mass spectrometry.
