My lab is interested in understanding the roles that transcriptomic diversification, especially through alternative splicing, play in vertebrate development and evolution. A major topic of our current research are microexons: tiny exons that are switched on during neuronal differentiation, sculpt protein surfaces, are misregulated in the brains of autistic patients, and have a fascinating evolutionary history.
