Nate Hathaway

Nate Hathaway made the Chromatin Indicator and Assay strain which allows one to study in vivo chromatin dynamics in living cells.  He then worked with Oli Bell to develop methods to assay the memory of heterochromatin domains and devised methods to understand the features that regulate heterochromatin formation and dissolution.  More recently he has applied this approach to a variety of other chromatin regulatory mechanisms to understand their in vivo mechanisms.  In July 2013 Nate joined the faculty of the University of North Carolina.
