Researchers from Center for Epigenetics uncover fundamental principles for understanding cell memory

Associate Professor Anja Groth and her research group at Center for Epigenetics publish in Genes and Development about new knowledge on the fundamental principles for how histone-based information is copied and transferred to daughter cells and thus gives us crucial insights into how cells remember their identity. The new  discovery has far-reaching bearing e.g. on our knowledge about cancer cells and diabetes.
