Eukaryotic development is a complex process that involves accurate control of gene expression networks. This process relies on chromatin, a nucleoprotein complex that can be physically remodeled by the addition or removal of epigenetic modifications either on DNA itself or the histone proteins that makeup the nucleosome. The objective of my research is to understand the mechanisms that control assembly and maintenance of facultative heterochromatin by PRC2 in the model fungi, Neurospora crassa
