We explore the structural basis of splicing regulation, with respect to (i) the coupling between splicing, the chromatin landscape and downstream processing events, as well as (ii) splicing modulation by cancer-causing mutations and by compounds with cytostatic effects. We employ single-particle electron cryomicroscopy, X-ray crystallography, complementary biochemical studies and various functional assays.
