Welcome to KwakLab.
We study the regulation of human gene expression. In particular, we are interested in…
- identifying regulatory regions of the genome and how their variation impact phenotypes in human population and disease,
- how RNAs are further modified and distributed to tune gene expression and modulate cell signaling,
- genome-wide analysis of RNA and DNA in single cells.
