Regulation of gene expression by small RNAs in plants
Institut Jean-Pierre Bourgin, Versailles, France
Our group deciphers the molecular mechanisms that plant cells use to inactivate at the transcriptional or post-transcriptional level invasive sequences of endogenous (transposons, duplications) or exogenous origins (pathogens, transgenes). We are particularly interested in the interplay between these silencing mechanisms and other processes, including DNA repair, chromatin assembly, transcription, RNA maturation and export, and RNA quality control.
