RNA is not only a carrier of genetic information, but also a catalyst and a guide for sequence-specific recognition and processing of other RNA molecules. This lab investigates the regulatory mechanisms of RNA interference, RNA-mediated translational control, and nuclear pre-mRNA splicing. Classical and combinatorial biochemical techniques are used to analyze the function of the RNA- and protein-components involved in those processes.
SciCrunch is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to scicrunch, however this is not currently a free service.
