overview Our goal is to understand the mechanism and regulation of nuclear pre-mRNA splicing, an essential step in eukaryotic gene expression. Pre-mRNA splicing is catalyzed by a massive multimegadalton ribonucleoprotein machine called the spliceosome. Using the model organism S. cerevisiae as well as human cells, we apply a wide array of approaches, ranging from single molecule microscopy, biophysics, and chemical biology to biochemistry and cell biology to genetics and genomics to gain a deep understanding of how the spliceosome catalyzes and regulates pre-mRNA splicing, including in the context of transcription.
