Brief description Long-term and heritable repression of genes by epigenetic mechanisms is essential for health but can also be dangerous if it goes wrong. Mathematical modelling and biochemical experiments will be used to understand how this gene silencing propagates and spreads along the DNA, and how it can be stopped from spreading too far.
