Congratulations to our PhD student Marlena Lübke for being awarded a prestigious Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds fellowship ( https://www.bifonds.de/fellowships-grants/phd-fellowships.html )! The Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds is a foundation that promotes basic research in biomedicine. Her project will investigate the regulators of promoter activity that act via CpG density.
Our latest study on how ISWI and SWI/SNF differentially regulate TF binding and chromatin structure in mouse ESCs is finally out in Nature.
