Hello everyone! My name is Ana Karina Morao, I am originally from Venezuela and joined Germano Cecere’s lab as a postdoctoral researcher. Before coming to Pasteur, I was in Sevinç Ercan’s lab at New York University, studying the mechanisms underlying genome organization in 3D space. Now, I am excited to explore the contribution of the nuclear small RNA pathway in higher-order genome organization and its impact on gene expression during animal development.
ERC-2020-CoG RNAiNHERITANCE – Somatic and Germline Mechanisms of Small RNA Inheritance
Inherited information is transmitted to progeny primarily via the genome through the gametes. In recent years, epigenetic inheritance has been demonstrated in several organisms, including animals. Yet, the molecules and mechanisms responsible for this […]
