The Carrington lab focuses on gene silencing pathways in multicellular organisms. They have pioneered wide-ranging investigations into small RNA (20-25 nucleotides in length) biogenesis, function and evolution, and assigned functional roles for small RNA-directed silencing pathways in development, genome defense, and antiviral defense. The lab has also developed high-throughput profiling and bioinformatic approaches to genome-wide analysis of small RNAs and their targets.
