RNA signatures in cell-fate decisions

Debojyoti Chakraborty is interested in looking at the roles played by long noncoding RNAs in disease pathways using innovative tools based on the recently developed CRISPR-Cas9 system. He is also involved in developing alternate genome and transcriptome engineering strategies based on orthologous Cas9 proteins from different bacterial species and employs chemical biology approaches to modulate their function. In addition, he uses mouse embryonic stem cells as a model system and applies these molecular tools to dissect pluripotency and lineage commitment factors.
