Ke Zhang: Epigenetics Research Provides Clinical Insight

The epigenome is the software of Life. All the cells in your body contain the same hardware, or DNA sequence. We’re different because we contain different transcriptional programs, or epigenomes. Different software will program the same hardware into a different thing.

Ke Zhang, Biology professor and BMB faculty member

Dr. Zhang’s research on Epigenetics and the Epigenome provides interesting insights into clinical research.  Read more below at the OG & B website.
