Research Interests

Research in my lab concerns four aspects of transcriptional regulation: histone biotinylation and gene expression; transcriptional activation and chromatin remodeling; RNA polymerase elongation factors and gene regulation; and heterochromatin and gene regulation. We use the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, as a model to study mechanisms of gene activation and gene silencing.
