Title: Cytosine-5 RNA methylation in stem cells and human diseases

The Frye group focuses on the identification and characterization of post-transcriptional modifications that regulate the maintenance of adult stem cells. The group further explore whether modulation of RNA-methylation pathways can help to protect from human diseases such as cancer.

The current group's research themes are:

  1. The dynamic deposition of 5-methylcytosine (m5C) into RNA
  2. The functional roles of m5C in RNA metabolism
  3. The importance of m5C methylases in development and diseases
