Dr. Jeff Yoder graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute with a B.S. in Biotechnology and performed his graduate work with Dr. Tim Bestor receiving his Ph.D. in Cell and Developmental Biology from Harvard University’s graduate program in Biological and Biomedical Sciences. He then did a post-doc with Dr. Gary Litman at the University of South Florida. Jeff was faculty at the University of South Florida before joined the faculty at NC State University in 2004. Jeff's current research interests are on identifying and characterizing novel mediators of innate immunity. His research employs the zebrafish model to study the genetic and functional evolution of innate immune receptors, for examining the immunotoxicological effects of environmental chemicals, and as a model for identifying novel mediators of immunity. His current studies on the evolution of immune receptors integrates genomic and transcriptomic data from all vertebrate lineages. His current immunotoxicology research employs zebrafish and cell culture models to study the impact of exposure to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) on immune function. This research is highly interdisciplinary and includes collaborations with evolutionary biologists, structural biochemists, toxicologists, chemists, engineers and field biologists. His research has been funded by NIH, NIEHS, NSF, MAF, TriCEM and a variety of foundations and agencies.

Cytosine methylation and the ecology of intragenomic parasites

MeSH headings : Animals; Cytosine / metabolism; DNA Methylation; DNA Transposable Elements; Gametogenesis; Gene Expression Regulation, Developmental; Mammals / genetics; Neoplasms / genetics; Retroviridae / genetics
TL;DR: It has become increasingly difficult to hold that reversible promoter methylation is commonly involved in developmental gene control; instead, suppression of parasitic sequence elements appears to be the primary function of cytosine methylation, with crucial secondary roles in allele-specific gene expression as seen in X inactivation and genomic imprinting.
