This singleton project utilises brain, buccal and blood derived samples from temporal lobe epilepsy patients to look at genes and genetic pathways where the epigenetic state links with epilepsy. By comparing different samples, we will be able to address the issue of tissue specificity in epigenomic studies. This project is in collaboration with A/Prof Jeff Craig, Centre for Molecular and Medical Research, School of Medicine, Faculty of Health, Deakin University.

This project is being undertaken in the Vadlamudi Group.
