Long non coding RNAs are involved in numerous cellular processes. Only recently we have began to understand that they have large complex structures which could play a role in the RNA’s function. My work involves structurally characterizing long non-coding RNAs by chemical probing techniques and cryo-EM. I also am interested in understanding the protein binding partners that interact with these RNAs.
