There is a growing body of evidence that chromatin undergoes reorganization during normal aging. A corresponding change in gene expression also occurs during normal aging. It is reasonable to expect that these two processes may be connected. However, the epigenetic mechanisms of this extensive rearrangement of the chromatin are virtually unknown. My research focuses on identifying the mechanisms that regulate age-associated heterochromatin formation.
