Genome Organization Mediated by RNA Polymerase II (Argyrys Papantonis)

Episode 90

December 14, 2022

In this episode of the Epigenetics Podcast, we caught up with Akis Papantonis from the University Medical Center Göttingen to talk about his work on genome organisation mediated by RNA Polymerase II.

The research of the Papantonis Laboratory focuses on investigating how environmental signalling stimuli are integrated by chromatin to control homeostatic to deregulated functional transitions. In more detail, the team is interested in how dynamic higher-order regulatory networks are influenced by the underlying linear DNA fiber. The ultimate goal of the laboratory is to understand general rules governing transcriptional and chromatin homeostasis and finally, how those rules might affect development, ageing or malignancies.
