RNA Biology

Post-transcriptional processes play a crucial role in controlling gene expression in all organisms. Our research is aimed at elucidating the mechanisms by which such control is imposed. To identify and characterize the proteins, RNA elements, and molecular mechanisms that govern these key regulatory processes, we employ a comprehensive approach combining biochemical, molecular biological, and genetic methods. We are particularly interested in understanding how gene expression in bacterial and mammalian cells is regulated by mRNA degradation.
