About the Project

This PhD project aims to characterise Polycomb-based epigenetic regulation in the model plant Arabidopsis. Throughout development, Polycomb silencing acts in a strictly controlled manner, spatially –with confined regions being silenced, and temporally –target loci being silenced in specific periods in the life cycle. The PhD student will investigate how the chromatin modifying complex Polycomb is targeted to specific loci in order to give rise to such distinct gene silencing patterns.

Informal inquiries are welcome and should be sent to Dr Song ([Email Address Removed]).

Please email Dr Song ([Email Address Removed]) and include in your application:
