Research in my lab is at the interface between reproductive Biology and RNA biology. Germ cells give rise to the gametes of organisms as “immortal creators”. How do they perpetuate themselves and diversify their offspring? We strive to understand how various germ-line RNAs prepare and shape information flowing across generations. We are adopting an interdisciplinary approach including genetics, biochemistry, bioinformatics and cell biology, and testing our finding across different model organisms including mammals and birds.
