In mammalian females, one of the two X-chromosomes is silenced to correct the imbalance of X-linked gene dosage between males (Xy) and females (XX). This chromosome-wide gene silencing is induced by a long noncoding RNA, Xist RNA.

Our laboratory is interested in the mechanisms of: (1) how the chromosome-wide silencing is induced by Xist RNA and (2) how the long-range silencing is maintained and organized. Our long-term goal is to understand how noncoding RNAs impact gene regulation and development in animals.
