My goals for today

  • FISH 546 9-10
  • Epigenetics reading group @ NOAA NWFSC 12:30-1:30
    • transgenerational of envronmental info
    • thoughts: stress opens heterochromatin => transposon/pseudo gene?/protogene? expression; does the cell just go crazy under stress and hope something works? Or is there a non-random mechanism that selects for advantageous changes?
    • siRNAs silence TEs: piRNAs specificly target transposons and this is heritable
    • should we be doing ChIPseq of H3K9me (heterochromatin mark) to complement methylation data if H3K9me marks change under stress like they do in the paper?
  • TGIT 4-6
