Molecular Biology: Research Topics


Gene Regulation

The proper regulation of gene expression is essential for the growth, development, and survival of organisms.

Research in the Section of Molecular Biology includes the analysis of the fundamental mechanisms by which gene activity is controlled at the levels of transcription, chromatin dynamics, RNA stability and function, and gene networks as well as the investigation of the critical roles of gene expression in the context of signal transduction, cancer, immunology, stem cell biology, and circadian rhythms.
