Overview of Our Research

It’s all about epigenetics!

From mammalian to plant systems, in healthy development and disease, epigenetics is a key mechanism involved in these processes.

Epigenetics is the layer of information that tells our genes where and how to be expressed without changes to the gene sequence. Whether or not a gene is expressed, for example whether it is turned off or on, is what leads to how an organism such as a developing embryo, a rat, or even a plant turns out. The BM Epigenetics Lab is passionate about how all organisms develop so that we can better understand how to maximise life going right and how to reduce the chances of life going wrong.
