Genome-wide identification of non-coding transcription by RNA polymerase V and its involvement in transcriptional gene silencing
My research involves understanding the RNA-dependent DNA Methylation (RdDM) pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana. Some factors involved in RdDM have been shown to interact with nucleosome-remodeling complexes. I am trying to determine how changes in nucleosome positions affects the methylation of DNA driven by non-coding RNAs (as seen in RdDM).
