3D genome organisation independent of gene regulation in Drosophila

Understanding how our genes function when all the genetic information is packaged into the nucleus is a key question for researchers in the Developmental and Regulatory Genomics group at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences (LMS) and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine in Muenster, Germany. Improving our fundamental understanding of the role of the 3D organisation of the genome and regulation of gene expression will help us to better understand changes that lead to mutations and disease, such as cancer.
