The Bonev lab studies how 3D genome organization and epigenetic modifications regulate cell identity during brain development. Using highly interdisciplinary approaches such as single cell multi-omics, next generation sequencing, live imaging and computational biology, we aim to understand how chromatin landscape influences cell fate decisions in development and evolution. We are based at the Helmholtz Zentrum München and hence part of an excellent network dedicated to epigenetics and neurosciences including the MPI for Neurobiology, the LMU and TU Munich as well as broad international collaborations.
