Jayaraman (Jay) Thangappan is a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Fellow Silvia (Silvi) Rouskin’s lab investigating RNA structure. We sat down with Thangappan to learn more about him and his experiences in and out of the lab.

Whitehead Institute researchers are uncovering new ways that genes are regulated that upend existing paradigms of gene expression and provide important insights into health and disease. This collection of stories and multimedia explores that research.

Beyond the Gene is a collection of pieces across storytelling mediums--text, audio, and video--that together paint a picture of how current research at Whitehead Institute is expanding the understanding of gene regulation.

Kehui “Coffee” Xiang is a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Member David Bartel’s lab and a Cancer Research Institute Irvington Fellow supported by the Cancer Research Institute. He is investigating regulation of gene expression by RNA. We sat down with Xiang to learn more about him and his experiences in and out of the lab.
