Maria Colomé-Tatché has been awarded a Helmholtz Young Investigator Group (YIG) grant to establish her research group within the Institute of Computational Biology.  This highly competitive grant is awarded to individuals demonstrating internationally recognised scientific excellence at early stages of their career and supports them as they develop academic independence. 

Leading her research group in Computational Epigenomics, Maria Colomé-Tatché aims to develop new computational methods for the interpretation of datasets generated from single cell and low input technologies as well as population studies.  These analyses will provide valuable insight in to how changes to the epigenome determine cellular identity and behaviour.

More information on her work can be found on the Computational Epigenomics group webpage and in the following press release from Helmholtz Zentrum Muenchen.
