The goals of our research are to understand how chromatin states are established and maintained and to understand how chromatin regulates transcription. We use a combination of biochemical, molecular biological, and genomics approaches.
Research FocusMolecular biologist Iestyn Whitehouse investigates chromatin structure and the function of ATP-dependent chromatin remodelling enzymes.
