Heritable epigenetic variation represents a poorly understood, yet significant, component of evolutionary biology. We use genetic, cytogenetic, genomic, and molecular approaches in corn to understand both the molecular mechanism and biological function of paramutation - a process responsible for meiotically heritable epigenetic changes in gene regulation. Our studies highlight novel aspects of eukaryotic chromosome organization and function.
