Welcome to the Nuñez Lab! We are in the Molecular and Cell Biology Department at UC Berkeley.
The core interest of our research is to understand the regulatory principles of the human genome. We develop and employ technologies for editing the human 'epigenome' and we study the mechanisms underlying epigenetic memory and inheritance in mammalian cells.
Our lab combines CRISPR-based gene and epigenome editing, functional genomics, cell biology, and biochemistry to answer our research questions.
