Chromatin & Splicing team at the Genome Integrity, RNA and Cancer unit
Our team aims at deciphering the role of histone modifications and histone variants in pre-mRNA alternative splicing regulation. Alternative splicing is an RNA process in which different mature mRNAs can be obtained from the same pre-mRNA sequence, increasing like this the protein diversity and capacity of a cell to gain new phenotypic traits.
In the past 20 years, chromatin has been shown to play an important role in this highly regulated process, although the mechanisms are not entirely known yet. Using available and soon to be developed genome-wide transcriptomics and epigenomics data, we are looking for splicing signatures dependent on chromatin modifications to elucidate the functional role of these marks in splicing regulation. Different human and mouse models will be used in collaboration with leaders in the chromatin, splicing and cancer fields.
