The recent advent of genomic information fostered by the invention of high-throughput sequencing has unveiled a plethora of regulatory molecules, including a large number of non-coding RNAs – RNA molecules little or no protein-coding potential. Many of these RNAs have important functions as modulators of gene expression.
In our group, we study the evolutionary dynamics of non-coding RNA molecules using a variety of plant and animal species with diverse evolutionary scales. We use bioinformatics and genomic data to understand the evolution of these molecules and the regulatory mechanisms in which they participate.
