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.

“If you are too sloppy, then you never get reproducible results, and then you never can draw any conclusions; but if you are just a little sloppy, then when you see something startling you say ‘Oh, my God, what did I do, what did I do different this time?’ And if you really accidentally varied only one parameter, you nail it down…I called it the ‘Principle of Limited Sloppiness'.”  - Max Delbrück
