Colloquium: Nuñez on editing the “epigenome” with CRISPR

Dr. Nuñez (Nuñez Lab website)

This week the Fall 2022 Biology Colloquium series will feature James L. Nuñez, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Structural Biology at UC Berkeley. Dr. Nuñez studies mechanisms of epigenetic inheritance, molecular means by which traits can be passed from parents to offspring outside the genetic code. His seminar, presented with support from the BRIDGES/URISE programs, will be titled, “Heritable control of gene expression with CRISPR epigenetic editing.”

The Colloquium series has returned to in-person presentations for Fall 2022, with talks held Fridays at 2pm in Chaparral Hall room 5125.
