Information

The development of multicellular organisms requires the establishment of individual patterns of gene expression in each cell type. This process is controlled by different classes of DNA regulatory elements: enhancers, silencers and insulators. Currently, the work of the group is focused on two main directions:

  • Investigation of protein complexes involved in the activation and repression of transcription;
  • The role of non-coding transcription in the activities of DNA-regulatory elements.
