Gene regulation and cell fate decision in C. elegans
Head of the Group
Dr. Baris Tursun
We are using the Nematode Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) as a powerful genetic model organism to study cellular reprogramming. The mission of our lab is to genetically identify and characterize factors that form a barrier for induced direct reprogramming also referred to as ‘lineage conversion’ or ‘transdifferentiation’.
