Chromatin architecture and function
The Berger lab is currently accepting postdoc applications throught the Vienna International Postdoctoral Programme (VIP2).
More than a simple scaffold for the DNA, the conserved proteins histones participate to regulations of genome activities. We explore how variants of core histones impact on genome expression, organization and inheritance. We also study interactions between histone variants with other chromatin modifications, contributing epigenetic landscapes that modulate cellular events in somatic and reproductive tissues.
