Development of algorithms to decipher the complexity of chromation organizationApply
Prof. Fischle's research aims to gain detailed and molecular understanding of fundamental epigenetic processes. In particular, he is investigating how modifications and small cellular molecules interplay to direct different structural and functional states of chromatin. To address these problems, Prof. Fischle is applying highly interdisciplinary approaches. These include advancing technologies for establishing and analyzing complex chromatin systems in vitro (biochemistry and biophysics), molecular and cellular biology for studying essential chromatin components and global analysis of modules of epigenetic regulation.
