Our lab studies mechanisms of RNA-based regulation in prokaryotes. Using high throughput, modern sequencing technologies we are studying the regulatory roles of small RNAs and antisense RNAs, as well as RNA modifications, in bacteria and archaea. We are also developing novel experimental and computational methods to study complete transcriptomes of prokaryotes, and are applying these methods to conduct comparative transcriptomics studies across the microbial tree of life.
