About Martin Newman

I am currently investigating how pre-mRNA splicing interacts with small regulatory RNA pathways to mediate silencing of foreign nucleic acid elements (such as trasposons and viruses) that can potentially damage the integrity of our genomes. I am also studying the functions of microRNAs in conferring resistance to bacterial pathogens.
