Welcome to the RNA Biology and Bioinformatics Group Webpage
Our lab was established in 2009 as part of the Gene Expression and Bioinformatics Unit of the Center for Biodiversity, Functional & Integrative Genomics.
Our research focuses on the characterization and modeling of post-transcriptional regulatory networks involved in the coordination of gene expression programs in vertebrates, using a combination of cell and molecular biology studies with genomics and bioinformatics approaches. We are particularly interested in regulatory events determined by small non-coding RNAs and the interaction of RNA binding proteins with mRNA untranslated sequence elements (UTRs)and how they can be targeted to influence on gene expression outputs for therapeutic applications.
We are located in the campus of the Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon, Portugal.
