Felix Jonas is a senior Postdoc in the lab of Naama Barkai at the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot, Israel. His interests include all aspects of gene regulation. In particular, he focuses on transcription factors and how they achieve their specificity, as well as nucleosome dynamics and how they shape the epigenetic landscape.
Next to the mechanism of gene regulation, he is also interested in how it enables multicellular development and how it evolved from unicellular prokaryotes to multicellular eukaryotes.
