Our lab uses a combination of high-throughput, functional genomics, bioinformatics and molecular approaches to study the co-transcriptional gene regulation of mammalian expression programs.
Our goal is to understand how gene architecture orchestrates the dynamic regulation of gene expression in normal cells and disease. We aim to build new computational tools to predict gene regulatory programs from genome sequences and gene architecture and design new strategies to manipulate gene expression with therapeutical purposes. We currently seek to understand three key aspects of gene regulation: (i) how promoter sequences drive RNA processing decisions, (ii) how transcription interferes with expression from nearby promoters, and (iii) how transcript starts and transcript ends are connected.
We are recruiting undergrads, grad students and postdocs. Get in touch!
