Intracellular compartments such as organelles are essential for a cell’s function. RNA occurs in every compartment in a cell. Research in the Liu group focuses on three fundamental questions relating to RNA, for which we seek an in vivo understanding. We choose the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster as our prime model system because of its genetic tractability and the depth of genomic data. Studies in Drosophila have provided a key to vertebrate development and human biology.
