The last few months in the lab were pretty busy: Sam Ross  and Allegra Angeloni published reviews on how DNA methylation participates in enhancer function and how TET proteins regulate embryonic development , while Ksenia Skvortsova ‘s story on the DNA methylome of zebrafish germ cells also finally saw the light of day. This work, published in Nature Communications provides insight into how zebrafish primordial germ cells (PGCs) remodel their DNA methylomes and their transcriptomes while making their way to the site of the prospective gonad.
