Profiling stem cell epigenetic transitions within the Drosophila hematopoietic stem cell niche

Applications accepted all year round
The self-renewal and differentiation of stem cells is controlled by signals derived from the microenvironment or “niche”. The paired hematopoietic organs of the Drosophila genetic model organism are a well-characterized system in which the regulation of stem cell behaviour within a niche can be genetically dissected.
