"Regulation of myelopoiesis by the transcription factor IRF8"

     I will discuss the regulatory mechanisms of myeloid cell development through our research on IRF8, which promotes the differentiation of mononuclear phagocytes (monocytes and dendritic cells), while limiting neutrophil differentiation. The topics will include our unpublished results such as enhancer landscape dynamics revealed by ChIP-seq and the mechanism of early uni-lineage commitment revealed by single cell RNA-seq.
