Evolutionary Genetics & Epigenetics

Welcome to the Takuno Lab Epigenetics focuses on heritable changes in gene expression without changes of DNA sequences.  Epigenetic modifications including DNA methylation and histone modifications play significant roles in altering such expression changes.  The goal of our research is to reveal the evolutionary processes that shape the genome-wide patterns of epigenetic modifications, "epigenomes", mainly in plant species.
