The term "epigenome" refers to the collection of chemical modifications to the DNA and chromatin in the nucleus of a cell, which profoundly influence the functional output of the genome. Epigenome research can provide novel insights into many long-standing questions pertaining to gene regulation and genome function and has the potential to significantly improve our knowledge of human biology and disease.



Our Science

Epigenomics can provide novel insights into many long-standing questions about gene regulation and genome function and can significantly improve our understanding of human biology and disease. Together, this knowledge can lead to breakthrough diagnostic and therapeutic opportunities.

Our mission is to make transformative discoveries which advance science and human health, by applying cutting-edge epigenomic technologies to critical research questions. Learn more...


Our Technology

To make the transformative discoveries that bring us closer to understanding the epigenome in each cell, disease, and individual - we employ state-of-the-art automated platforms for high-throughput epigenomics and single-cell genomics. These platforms enable comprehensive investigation into diverse aspects of the epigenome - and ensure accuracy, reproducibility, and scalability when making these important discoveries.

Collaboration

A core part of our mission is to unlock the transformative potential of epigenomics through collaboration. Collaborations with academic and industry partners have the potential to transform our knowledge of the human genome, and to change the paradigm of how we diagnose and treat disease. Learn more...
