Experimental RNA Biology___________________________________________

Peter Brodersen, Associate Professor Our group studies the mechanisms by which small RNAs regulate gene expression. We use the flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana as a model system, and make particular use of molecular genetic and biochemical approaches in our work.

Jan Christiansen, Associate Professor We are mainly focusing on post-transcriptional events such as RNA localization, RNA stability, and translational control with an emphasis on the role of cytoplasmic RNA-binding proteins expressed during fetal life and oncogenesis.

Jeppe Vinther, Associate Professor In our group we aim to determine how RNA structure and RNA-protein interactions affect basal cellular processes. This knowledge is important to understand ways of improving the effeciency and specificity of RNA based drugs.
