determine how epigenetic regulators control gene expression in normal B lymphocyte development and leukemias.
The student will assist with studies of
novel epigenetic pathway that 1) normally turns genes off, 2) is disrupted in leukemia, and 3) controls cell identity, and 3) controls cell identity. In absence of this regulation, many genes are activated out of context with deleterious effects on the host.
