Our laboratory is interested in epigenetic regulation of gene expression, especially histone modifications, chromatin remodeling, histone chaperone, and ncRNA regulation. We are also interested in noncoding RNA interaction with Protein. We use structural biology methods to study structure, dynamics, and function of protein, RNA, and their interactions in epigenetic regulation process.
