Project Area B - Chromatin changes mediated by long-range interactions

Group B projects focus on long range organization of chromatin in nuclear space. Structural proteins such as CTCF or cohesin drive chromatin folding, loop formation, intra- and inter-chromosomal contacts to regulate accessibility and activity of larger genomic regions. The PIs assigned to that group are listed in the text.
