Synopsis: Germ cells are the founder cells that give rise to mature eggs and sperm. Epigenetic modifications are laid down throughout early gamete development not only ensure correct development in an individual, but also that of the subsequent generation. My PhD project discusses how alterations to epigenetic modifiers during fetal germline development affect the oocyte epigenome and outcomes in offspring.
