We study eukaryotic DNA transcription and pre-mRNA splicing, using brewer’s yeast as a model system. We are interested in fundamental mechanisms as well as regulation, and focus on how RNA-protein and RNA-RNA interactions direct accurate and efficient gene expression. We utilize biochemical, genetic, genomic and single-cell approaches, and collaborate with structural biologists.
