post doc position at NIH
We combine imaging techniques in both fixed and living cells with sequencing- based genomic techniques that assess DNA-DNA interactions.
(A) Hi-C and CTCF ChIP- seq of GM1278 cells
(B) dCAS9 MCP-EGFP and PCP-CHERRY live imaging of the Igh and Akap6 loci.
The mouse embryo is an unparalleled system in mammalian biology for understanding how tissue- specific gene expression is achieved.
(C) Whole mount in-situ hybridization for patterning markers in mid and late gastrulating embryos.
(D) Tetraploid aggregation with GFP ES cells allows generation of fully ES-cell derived embryos.
