The role of chromatin and lncRNAs in alternative splicing regulation

 

Reini Luco and her research team are looking for novel mechanisms of alternative splicing regulation amongst chromatin and long non-coding RNAs. By using a well established and inducible human model system of cell reprogramming, they aim at understanding which is the dynamic interplay between chromatin, lncRNAs and alternative splicing regulation and to demonstrate for the first time the real physiological impact of chromatin on cell-specific splicing.
