Dr. Pugh Traveled to Maine

July 22 – 26, 2018- Dr. Pugh traveled to Newry, ME to attend the Gordon Research Conference on Chromatin Structure and Function. The title of Dr. Pugh’s talk was Genomic Mechanisms of Gene Regulation and Chromatin Organization.

Conference Description:

2018 Pugh – Mahony Annual Lab Outing!

Here at Pugh lab we care about building good community. That is why each year we plan various group activities outside of the lab, such as our annual lab outing. This year for our annual lab outing we camped at Ricketts Glenn, followed by an early Fourth of July barbecue. Please enjoy some picture from our outdoor adventure! Central Pennsylvania is a beautiful place to live and work!

Recruiting new talent to PughLab!

We are looking for talented and motivated individuals who want to be a part of the epigenomics revolution!

We developed and use the ultra-high resolution ChIP-exo mapping technique.1 Most notably, we are using yeast and human systems to define the positional and mechanistic organization of all proteins that interact with the genome. Knowledge of protein positional organization informs of biological mechanisms that we can test using various gene editing methods.2 In human systems we look at many cell types, including clinical samples that are prepared and sequenced here in Dr. Pugh’s lab. Dr. Mahony’s lab is also investigating neuronal cells.3 What is most exciting is integrating thousands of datasets into a coherent view of genome regulation. This is what is most challenging also, as it involves developing advances in computational and statistical methods. Read more Recruiting new talent to PughLab!
