Post-transcriptional regulation of genes has gained much attention in recent years because of its direct and rapid regulation of protein levels. Our previous research has developed two novel and powerful platforms to study RNA structure in vivo and across diverse species at both the genome-wide scale (Ding et al., 2014 Nature) and in individual RNAs (Kwok et al., 2013 Nature Communications). These breakthroughs have removed technological barriers and opened up new avenues for RNA biology research. Our lab utilizes multidisciplinary knowledge and approaches in areas of Nucleic Acid Chemistry, RNA Biology and Bioinformatics.
Our research focuses on:
1. Determining the role of RNA structure in the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression including translation, polyadenylation, RNA splicing, RNA stability and RNA processing.
2. Exploring how RNA structures alter in response to environmental changes.
3. Developing new experimental and analytical approaches for revealing RNA structure and RNA-protein interactions.
Our lab is seeking enthusiastic and highly motivated people with interests in studying these new avenues.
