    About

    Personal Statement

    Our current work is focused on the mechanisms of regulated transcript degradation and the link between translation and the modification of RNA, which involves the addition of a short pyrimidine tags to the transcripts. This tag marks transcripts for silencing, triggering a shift in their subcellular localisation and promoting rapid degradation. Additional interest include: whole transcriptome sequencing to define the functional genome; nitrogen metabolism and its regulation; the application of comparative genomics to decipher the regulatory code.
