The Collaborative Research Centre (SFB 1309) "Chemical Biology of Epigenetic Modifications" deals with the small chemical modifications of biomolecules. These epigenetic changes represent a second information level in the genetic makeup and play a crucial role in the regulation of various vital processes. The new CRC aims at explaining the chemical language of the modifications and at better understanding its origin and function. To do so, the scientists want to examine epigenetic mechanisms with the help of analytic and synthetic methods and identify the proteins involved. This way, the way for new options for the therapy of diseases such as cancer and certain mental disorders is to be opened up and paved.
