Deciphering the functions of novel histone modifications

Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Robert Schneider

Enrolled since 2021

I obtained my Bachelor and Master in Biomedical Sciences at Chung-Gung University, Taiwan. In my Master's thesis, I focused on induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) and their microenvironment. After completing my Master's degree, I moved into cancer biology as a research assistant to study the etiology of non-coding RNA in colorectal cancer. Hereafter, I joined Schneider's group in the summer of 2021 to continue my research career on histone biology and chromatin dynamics. In this project, I mainly work with histone core modifications and aim to unravel the importance of histone lateral modifications for chromatin organization and cellular behaviors.
