Entomology and Plant Pathology Seminar

September 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Function and evolution of DNA methylome in the jewel wasps

Dr. Xu Wang, School of veterinary and Medicine

Dr. Wang’s research focuses primarily on the genetic and epigenetic regulation of gene expression in vertebrates and insects, with emphasis on functional, evolutionary and comparative genomic analyses of epigenetically regulated allelic imbalance, such as X chromosome inactivation (XCI) and genomic imprinting, whose misregulation is often involved in human and animal diseases including cancer. Dr. Wang uses reciprocal F1 hybrid crosses of inbred strains/species, including lab mouse strains, horse and donkey (known as mule and hinny), cow and bison, two opossum lines, two inbred chicken breeds, African and European bees and two jewel wasp species.
