Individual cells of a body exhibit a stunning diversity of phenotypes, despite carrying a largely identical genetic makeup. The differences between say, a neuron and a muscle cell are thus determined by the distinct ways in which the same genetic information can be read, interpreted and translated into function. This multifaceted process has been a major focus of study over the last decade, during which scientists have unveiled several additional layers of complexity. At the RNA Regulatory Networks (RRN) Group at the Biozentrum in Basel we use both experimental and computational methods to discover and understand the regulatory networks governing the interpretation of genetic information at the level of tissues and single cells.
