Can Li Research Technician clli@caltech.edu Scientific Interest: Mechanistic dissection of the regulatory roles of non-coding RNAs in gene expression and epigenetics. Projects: Investigating the transgenerational effect of maternally deposited piRNAs. Establishing a piRNA-independent tethering system for locating Piwi to a reporter locus to gain mechanistic insight into how Piwi recruitment influences local chromatin state and transcription.
