Fungal RNA Biology

Our molecular and biochemical understanding of basic fungal processes lags far behind our understanding of other microbes like bacteria or viruses. We aim to level the playing field by defining novel modes of regulation for fungal RNA. These studies will provide a base for the development of future RNA-based therapeutics.
