Main Focus

Prior to joining this lab as a postdoc, I was a PhD student working on understanding the importance of Nonsense-mediated mRNA Decay (NMD) for auxin signaling in Arabidopsis. To achieve that objective, transcriptomic studies such RNAseq, Nanopore sequencing were performed and verified with RT-qPCR. I was particularly interested with the Nanopore sequencing data, as these data could provide some insights on the transcript architecture and revealing some possibly new splice isoforms. Slowly but surely, my PhD project had me familiarized with the term ‘splicing’ and deepen my insight on the importance of splicing event.

To me, ‘Splicing’ in transcriptome is a no-stranger, but definitely not in the world of proteome.  I am intrigued by the ultimate goal of Quantitative and Systems Biology (QSB) led by Juliane to understand the mechanism of proteasome peptide splicing and its significance in immunology via MHCI antigen presentation pathway. With much excitement, I jumped on the bandwagon and looking forward to decoding the importance of proteasome peptide splicing with QSB research team!
