The Avner lab’s interests in Epigenetics are centred around the characterisation of the role of the X-inactivation centre on the initiation of X-inactivation. Particular focuses include the Xce locus arising out of a collaboration with Bruce Cattanach which has been defined through an eventual role in the process of X chromosome choice, exploration of mechanism underlying lineage specificities in the X-inactivation process including imprinted X-inactivation, and developmental processes which directly and indirectly determine the onset of X-inactivation during embryogenesis.
