We use complementary genetic and epigenetic approaches in mouse models, in order to discover genetic variants in noncoding regions of the genome underlying the etiologies of Tet1-dependent neurulation disorders, or the epigenetic dysregulation related to non-genetic factors, or the combination of both. Studies using transgenic mouse strains generated in the laboratory will be complemented with in vitro studies using mouse and human pluripotent stem cell cultures. Bulk and single-cell multiomics approaches will be used to investigate epigenetic mechanisms regulating chromatin accessibility, gene expression and DNA methylation in neurulation and cell fate reprogramming.
