Edith Heard mostly deals with Genetics, X-inactivation, XIST, X chromosome and Chromatin. Her Genetics research incorporates elements of Data processing and Computational science. Her studies deal with areas such as Cellular differentiation, Reprogramming, Molecular biology, Transcription and Epigenetics as well as X-inactivation.
Her study in XIST is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Tsix, RNA, Non-coding RNA and Histone. In her study, E2F and Retinoblastoma is strongly linked to Heterochromatin, which falls under the umbrella field of X chromosome. In her work, Computational biology and Chromosome is strongly intertwined with Chromosome conformation capture, which is a subfield of Chromatin.
Genetics, X-inactivation, XIST, X chromosome and Chromatin are her primary areas of study. Genetics is represented through her Gene, Regulation of gene expression, Locus, Chromosome conformation capture and Chromosome research. Her X-inactivation research includes themes of Molecular biology, Epigenetics, Cellular differentiation and Dosage compensation.
Her studies in XIST integrate themes in fields like Tsix, RNA, Heterochromatin, Gene silencing and Transcription. She has researched X chromosome in several fields, including Yeast artificial chromosome, DNA methylation and Somatic cell. The study incorporates disciplines such as Histone, Genome, Computational biology and Cell biology in addition to Chromatin.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in XIST, X-inactivation, Chromatin, Cell biology and RNA. The various areas that Edith Heard examines in her XIST study include Tsix, Heterochromatin, Transcription and Locus. Her work carried out in the field of X-inactivation brings together such families of science as Gene silencing and Epigenetics.
Her Chromatin research integrates issues from Evolutionary biology, Histone, Dosage compensation, Fluorescence in situ hybridization and Regulation of gene expression. Her work in Histone addresses subjects such as Chromosome conformation capture, which are connected to disciplines such as Genomic organization. Her work deals with themes such as Chromatin Loop, CTCF and Cohesin, which intersect with Cell biology.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Chromatin, X-inactivation, XIST, Epigenetics and Regulation of gene expression. Her Chromatin research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Histone and Genomic imprinting. Her Histone study introduces a deeper knowledge of Genetics.
Her X-inactivation research includes elements of Dosage compensation and Cell biology. Her XIST study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as RNA. Her biological study deals with issues like Transcription, which deal with fields such as Ectopic expression, Tsix and RNA polymerase II.
