RNA is modified by >100 chemical modifications. These modifications are, in some cases, highly ubiquitous, conserved and dynamically regulated in mRNA, imposing a unique and uncharacterized regulatory code. Our lab aims to crack this code, and understand how modifications on mRNA direct gene expression programs and cell state decisions. Our lab bridges experimental and computational aspects of biological research, combining genomic, genetic and biochemical approaches with tailored computational ones.
