Whitehead Institute Member David Bartel’s lab has uncovered how a key shift in RNA regulation happens early in embryonic development, providing new insight into when and how genes are regulated differently during development.
Whitehead Institute researchers Silvi Rouskin, Ankur Jain, and David Bartel discuss how their RNA research connects to health and disease, including viral infections and neurodegeneration. This podcast is part of a multimedia series on RNA.
Researchers at Whitehead Institute have made important discoveries that have uncovered the prevalence, characteristics, and functions of regulatory RNAs. Their work has transformed researchers’ understanding of gene regulation and revealed a complex, elegant system that tailors gene expression for each cell type and tissue.
Jarrett Smith is a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Member David Bartel’s lab investigating how cells respond to stress. We sat down with Smith to learn more about him and his experiences in and out of the lab.
How viral RNA flexes to express different genes, a new model for studying human cancers in mice, and more: learn about the latest findings from Whitehead Institute researchers in this Research Highlights video.
