This exciting new course will provide training in the experimental and computational approaches that can be used to mechanistically dissect important aspects of chromatin biology at the gene or genome-wide levels.
Our understanding of complex genomes has benefitted tremendously from whole genome sequencing projects. However, we are only beginning to systematically understand how the interplay of DNA, proteins and its biochemical modifications (i.e., chromatin) can influence global processes which control gene expression, mRNA splicing, and DNA replication or repair in normal development and in disease.
