During cell division, not only the genome, but also the cell type is inherited by the daughter cells. This intriguing phenomenon is achieved by a variety of processes that have been collectively termed epigenetics, namely the stable and inheritable changes in gene expression patterns.
In this talk I will review the...

To understand how cellular metabolism, epigenetics, and tissue microenvironment affects cellular evolution and tumor progression, we developed methods to visualize and quantify genetic, epigenetic, and...
