We are interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms that control and coordinate transcription and co-transcriptional processes, including splicing, chromatin remodeling and termination. We develop genomic approaches to study these questions, such as nascent elongating transcript sequencing (NET-seq), which provides a quantitative measure of RNA polymerase density across the genome with single nucleotide precision.
