RNA silencing and antibacterial defense

Our research interests are to understand the role and regulation of small RNAs in plant and mammalian innate immunity and to unravel the mechanisms by which bacterial effectors interfere with RNA silencing to enable disease. Our lab is also investigating the dynamics and biological relevance of DNA methylation in antibacterial defense using Arabidopsis thaliana and human intestinal epithelial cells as model systems.

Keywords: Innate immunity / epigenetics / DNA methylation / bacterial pathogenesis / RNA silencing
