JCCC Seminar Featuring Dr. Julie Baker

Chromatin and Transcription Factor Signatures During Endoderm Differentiation from hESCs

JCCC SeminarJulie Baker., Ph.D.

Presented by:
Julie Baker, Ph.D.
Associate Professor
Departments of Genetics and Ob/Gyn
Stanford University School of Medicine

Dr. Julie Baker's lab is interested in how cellular differentiation is governed by dynamic changes occurring in the genome. These mechanisms, including epigenetic marks, changes in chromatin structure and gene expression, are used by the genome to instruct the very first differentiation events in the embryo. These differentiation events begin when the blastocyst becomes fated toward either embryonic or extraembryonic tissues and then continue upon the beginning of the first germ layers: endoderm, ectoderm and mesoderm.
