PBS Program Name:
ARC 17/18 Discovery
Grant Program:
Discovery Projects
Grant Activity:
Silencing the X chromosome: why and how
Purpose:
The project aims to understand why we have X chromosome inactivation, and examine the fundamental molecular mechanisms of how it is achieved. The project will explore RNA-mediated epigenetic modification of whole chromosomes with innovative molecular methods in placental mammals, and also iconic Australian mammals, to transform our understanding of X chromosome inactivation. Further understanding whole chromosome silencing, will inform future research into potential therapies for chromosomal trisomies.
