Science at PRBB: Guillaume Filion’s Genome Architecture lab (CRG)

This half-experimental half-computational laboratory works on how the architecture of the genome affects gene expression. How does a cell know how to read its DNA? Why some genes are or are not activated depending on the genomic context where they are located? The Filion’s lab studies the mystery of position effect variegation. The French scientist explains why this is important in one minute.
