Our lab studies cytosine methylation as a mechanism for epigenetic inheritance.
We use Arabidopsis alongside other evolutionary significant species to understand how the pattern of methylation is both inherited and altered over generations to influence developmental processes such as flowering.
We are working with mathematical modellers to understand how methylation is controlled and how it can subtly manipulate gene expression.
We are also interested in the mechanism of demethylation during genomic imprinting.
Zilberman Lab is located at John Innes Centre, Norwich UK.
