We study gene regulation, - more specifically, the molecular mechanisms that govern differential regulation of our ~20,000 genes in different cell types, tissues, and organs.
Increasing attention is being given to non-protein coding RNAs as regulators of gene expression, often referred to as the hidden layer of gene regulation. But so far very little is known about the presence and function of such regulatory RNA genes outside model organisms. In this project we want to understand the roles of these genes in the evolution of eukaryote form and complexity.
