Rebecca Berrens

Group Leader

Rebecca Berren's research is funded by Wellcome Trust as a Sir Henry Wellcome Fellow as well as by the Institute for Developmental and Regenerative Medicine (IDRM) / Department of Paediatrics transition fellowship to set up her own research group.

The Berrens group is trying to understand how transposable element expression controls gene expression during early mammalian development. To accomplish this, the lab has recently developed CELLO-seq, a novel method to study locus-specific transposable element expression in single cells using long-read sequencing.
