We are interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms that control and coordinate transcription and co-transcriptional processes, including splicing, chromatin remodeling and termination.
We investigate the regulatory mechanisms that control mitochondrial gene expression, from DNA to protein.
To study these questions, we develop and apply high resolution genomic approaches that quantitatively reveal the production of gene products, such as nascent elongating transcript sequencing (NET-seq) and ribosome profiling.
The lab has 4 postdocs, 4 students, two technicians and a research scientist. Our newest members are graduate students, Heather Landry and Blake Tye.
