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.

“That the fundamental aspects of heredity should have turned out to be so extraordinarily simple supports us in the hope that nature may, after all, be entirely approachable…This is encouraging, for, if the world in which we live were as complicated as some of our friends would have us believe we might well despair that biology could ever become an exact science.” Thomas Hunt Morgan 1919
