- 1/ Beat me to it! Excited to announce some of our work over the last 2 years in my lab @salkinstitute. We report in @CellCellPress today the discovery of the Cas13d family of CRISPR RNases and the development of CasRx, a platform for RNA targeting and "transcriptome engineering". t.co/8qFMMi349t
- Our latest preprint, on reconstructing ancestral primate enhancers and functionally testing along w/ their present-day orthologs via MPRA: t.co/LNz3AN5m1x Many ancestral enhancers more active than their present-day descendants. Work led by the outstanding @winonthe1sttri t.co/PrsP7T6s0D
- Exciting paper using WGS in >1,000 individuals to show that complex structural variation contributes to Mendelian disease. Awesome work! #genomics t.co/47xrk1tstS
- Wow: genes of the same functional group residing on different chromosomes tend to co-localize in 3D space within a nucleus to facilitate co-expression, as shown by Hi-C contact maps. #genomics #3Dgenomics #mindblown #GeneRegulation #transcriptomics t.co/W760acURyY
