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.
A post-doctoral fellowship is available for the project "Regulation of mRNA metabolism by the U2AF and PTB splicing factors - novel mechanisms for the coordination of gene expression?"
