Analysis of chromatin states by ChIP-seq in leaf of maize plants grown in stressing environments

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The aim of this project is to analyze the epigenetic states of chromatin in leaf of maize plants grown under three different stressing conditions and assess if the histone modifications involved in the changes of these states are stable or reversible after stress removal. Epigenetic states will be analyzed genome-wide (ChIP-seq) using next generation sequencing technology (Illumina) and chromatin will be precipitated to evaluate three different histone modifications corresponding to two different epigenetic state in plants

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
