Dynamics of RNAs

The importance of RNAs in regulation of cell determination and disease continues to grow. We study the dynamics of RNAs including co-transcriptional alternative splicing and transport (IanSwinburne). We use a combination of genetic, biochemical and novel genomic and imaging approaches to study RNA dynamics on a systems-wide level in both model organisms (yeast and fly) and human cells, eg (NatalieGilks) and (MichaelMoore). We have generated a spatial and temporal map of the expression of all RNA-binding proteins in mammalian neural development (AdrienneMckee). One goal is to decode the way that proteins recognize RNA throughout the genome.
