I'm interested in how chromatin state shapes mutation rate in plants. The rate at which new mutations arise is not uniform throughout the genome. One reason for this is that some chemical modifications of chromatin promote DNA repair at certain regions of the genome. I'm using Arabidopsis thaliana to describe the ways in which chromatin state affects mutation rate.
