Our interests are to understand eukaryotic gene regulation at the transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels using molecular genetics and functional genomics. The effects of such regulated gene expression on cell division and differentiation are being studied. Molecular genetic studies of pre-mRNA splicing factors: Removal of introns from precursor-mRNAs occurs in a Ribonucleoprotein particle: the spliceo
