We analyze various biological phenomena exhibited by ES cells and iPS cells, particularly through the utilization of forward genetics. Forward genetics is a method that allows researchers to explore the function of genes without arbitrary intervention. Based on unexpected discoveries obtained with this method, we aim to develop new research fields.

    We have reported that a genetic mutation in Smarce1, one of the subunits of the chromatin remodeling complex, induces chromatin instability in mouse ES cells(Kashiwagi et al. J Cell Sci). This finding was discovered through screening the homozygous mutant mouse ES cell bank that we previously reported. It is featured in the Research Highlights of the same issue.
