Current Advances in Epigenetics

Epigenetics is a field of modern biological research that is concerned with influences on gene expression, developmental biology, and disease that are mediated by mechanisms independent of DNA sequence. This course is a literature review course in which each student will present and critically analyze primary literature in epigenetics. All students will present and participate in detailed technical evaluations of selected papers, and develop a written proposal for future research based on the paper(s) that they present individually. Topics will include imprinting, X chromosome inactivation, chromatin dynamics, and cloning (nuclear transfer). Also offered as MCB 5470.
