Epigenomics of vitamin D

The scientific interest of our team is on mechanisms of gene regulation and its impact on major common diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis and cancer. Our investigations use methods of molecular biology, bioinformatics and systems biology.

Systems Genomics - Heinäniemi lab

Our research is focused on elucidating disease mechanisms that are related to aberrant regulation of cell states. Genome-wide technologies can reveal the collective activity of the genome, even at single cell resolution. These readouts capture the repertoire of cell states in tissues. We study re...
