Yon joined Dr. Lobanenkov’s group in 2021 as a senior research associate and works on several research projects. A major focus is the search of protein-partners, which are involved in 3D genome organization together with CTCF and cohesin. Yon utilizes cell biology assays, CRISPR genome editing and next-generation sequencing (NGS) techniques to gain insights into the regulation of 3D chromatin structure.
