The Eric Lai Lab: Projects

microRNAs and other small regulatory RNAs

We combine genetic, biochemical, and computational approaches to elucidate small RNA biogenesis and biology

Alternative mRNA processing and modification

The Lai lab uses an integrated approach to study selected topics in mRNA processing and modification, including alternative polyadenylation, circularization and RNA methylation.

Notch Signaling

The Lai lab uses molecular, genetic, and biochemical approaches to identify and characterize genes that regulate Notch signal transduction in Drosophila.
