B cell differentiation is critical for antibody-mediated clearance of pathogens. Kealy et al. show a key role for the histone modifier DOT1L in B cell responses. DOT1L is essential for appropriate localization of B cells to form germinal centers, the critical sites for producing high-affinity antibody and B cell memory.
