My group combines biochemistry, mass spectrum and bioinformatics to
(1) investigate new mechanisms of transgenerational epigenetic inheritance using fly as a model organism;
(2) identify novel epigenetic modifications and enzymes, and their functions in different biological settings including organ regeneration processes and diseases in heart and lung development.
