RNA epigenetics is an ever-expanding research on how RNA modifications regulate almost all aspects of RNA metabolism. While more than 170 RNA epigenetic modifications are known to exist, few have been extensively characterized. This offers an enormous untapped potential for discovering novel RNA modification defects that can contribute to disease progression. Our lab focuses on characterizing these RNA modifications by developing novel high-throughput sequencing techniques to map out epitranscriptomes at single-base resolutions. Our overall goal is to elucidate how these RNA modifications regulate cellular functions and in turn, contribute to human diseases.
**We are looking to recruit motivated post-doctoral candidates and graduate students who are interested in Epitranscriptomics and RNA Biology.**
