 Welcome to the Lab

Our research goal is to investigate how chromatin factors and noncoding RNA transcription control dynamics of RNA polymerase II transcription to coordinate cellular processes upon environmental changes.


Our Lab started in 2013 at Ewha Womans university. Currently, the lab consists of 4 graduate students and 2 undergraduate students.



- A manuscript on Set2 has been accepted for publication in Nature Communications (10-2016)
