We study how genome activity is regulated to establish and maintain programmes of gene expression in development. We use the C. elegans animal model system, and our research combines multiple approaches, including single-cell analyses, high-throughput chromatin assays, high-resolution imaging, genetics, genome editing, computational analyses, and RNAi screening for functional gene discovery.
