We are exploring the role of chromatin in regulating metabolism and appetite control. Using Drosophila melanogaster as model system we are able to identify novel regulatory pathways that allow organisms to adapt to different metabolic states. In addition to the genetic tools offered by Drosophila, we use genomics, proteomics and biochemistry to investigate these novel pathways in various cell types and organs such neurons and glia of the central nervous system. Read more...
