Phone:  +972-77-8871894
I’m a Ph.D. student in the lab. My main interest is exploring the mysterious but fun area of transcription regulation in yeast. Most of all, what are the chromatin regulators required to up-regulate or down-regulate gene transcription. I received my B.Sc and M.Sc degrees from the Biotechnology and Food engineering Faculty in the Technion (2016). Continue Reading Inbal Vaknin
