Personal profile

Research Interests

DNA and proteins are non-randomly localized within the nucleus of the cell.  The Brickner lab studies how cells control the position of genes within the nucleus, and how gene positioning affects gene expression.  When genes are activated or repressed, their position in the nucleus often changes.  The lab has identified DNA "zip codes" in the promoters of genes that control their positioning, transcription and, through an epigenetic mechanism, chromatin structure.
