RNA Biology: Post-transcriptional Regulation of Gene Expression

We study the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression by RNA-binding proteins and small non-coding RNAs in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, using diverse techniques including genetics, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and computational biology.

"We need to study the ‘grammar’ of biological systems, and this is one reason why thinking about genes alone is not enough. We have to know the principles of construction of the system to comprehend the possibilities.”  Sydney Brenner
