Gene Yeo, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Cellular and Molecular Medicine
Pathways/processes: Transcription, RNA splicing, microRNA-mRNA interaction, Epigenetics, Translation
The Yeo Lab combines genomics, machine-learning, biochemistry and genetics to identify functional RNA elements recognized by RNA binding proteins and study their interaction in controlling the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression underlying human genetic and infectious diseases. In particular, we are generating patient-specific pluripotent stem cells to model neurological disorders, and understanding microRNA-mediated virus-host interaction.
