The Centre for Epigenetics was established as a Centre of Excellence; funded by The Danish National Research Foundation. The Centre brings together the distinct expertise of five research groups - four of them located at BRIC,University of Copenhagen and one at DBMB, University of Southern Denmark.
The centre's research is divided into four major work packages:
- Mapping post-translational modifications of the histones
- Functional translation of the histone marks
- Cellular control of epigenetic regulation
- Biological significance of the identified modifications and proteins
