Prof. Ast’s lab studies mechanisms of alternative splicing regulation using a combination of computational and experimental methods.
These studies include the potential link between DNA packaging and splicing, and other epigenetic characteristics have on pre-mRNA processing.
Prof. Ast’s group tries to link between splicing and various cancer types (lung and colon cancer, for example) using molecular and computational methods as well as the role splicing plays in microRNA (miRNA) regulation.
