Research Interests (Please place in paragraph form)
Our research focus on tumor-related epigenetic dysregulation, both as active and passive contributor of tumorigenesis. Since epigenetic modifications in large part serve the purpose of fine-tuning transcriptional processes, protect the genome, anchor the chromosomal regions to various compartments of the nucleus, and to locally and globally orchestrate coordinated gene expressions by modifying critical control elements of the genome, we strive to analyse individual epigenetic regulators in an as simple cytogenetic background as possible to reduce noice. Our study objects are therefore childhood tumors that provide the inner and most aggressive workings of neoplastic growth. The goal of our research is to unravel epigenetic patterns that drive tumorigenesis and can be used as biomarkers in prevention and stratification of patients in the clinic. Students interested in epigenetics and bioinformatics in all its aspects from model organisms to cancer are welcome to apply to our research group.
