      Our laboratory studies DNA base modifications and their erasure in the control of gene expression in stem cells and cancer. Our efforts extend to two distinct DNA modification systems: i) erasure of DNA cytosine methylation through Tet-oxidized 5-methylcytosine intermediates; and ii) DNA adenine N6 methylation (6mA), a previously unrecognized form of DNA modification in mammals. We are particularly interested in understanding how writers, readers and erasers of these marks modulate gene control in embryonic stem cells, and how this process goes awry in cancers such as myeloid leukemia. We use a combination of biochemistry, mouse genetics and next-generation sequencing strategies (MeDIPseq, RNA-seq, RRBS-seq) to address these questions.
