Alastair Fleming is an Assistant Professor in the School of Microbiology and Genetics at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, where he is the PI of the Yeast Chromatin Group. His research group focuses on the role of ‘chromatin remodelling’ during various biological processes in yeast. Current research areas include the investigation of: (i) the epigenetic signature associated with cellular aging, (ii) the epigenetic regulation of transcription initiation, (iii) epigenetic memory during transcription elongation, and (iv), the chromatin-mediated regulation of flocculation within yeast cell populations.
