The IFE investigates how epigenetic processes regulate chromatin function and gene expression. We aim to unravel how the environment impacts on the epigenome and to discover novel pathways regulating DNA organisation in order to identify novel therapeutic targets.

About the Institute of Functional Epigenetics

  • The Institute of Functional Epigenetics is interested in how genes are packaged within the nucleus of a cell. The focus is on the so-called "histone proteins" on which the DNA strands are wound and that can determine whether a gene can be read or not. In addition, we are examining the connections between common diseases and distortions in DNA packing. We utilize cutting edge methods that enable us to follow changes of these processes even in individual cells. More...
