Welcome to Jia group

   Our research focuses on the functions of RNA modifications in regulation of human diseases and plant development. Through application of the tools from chemical biology, cell biology, molecular biology, and bioinformatics, we will develop the Chemical labeling methods for detection of RNA modifications, characterize the writers, erasers, and readers for RNA modifications to uncover the unknown regulatory roles, and elucidate the molecular mechanism of RNA modifications in human diseases and plant developments.
