How a small RNA pathway talks to the heterochromatin machinery

Inaugurating the #ScienceChatIMBA series: Group Leader Julius Brennecke, graduate student Veselin (Ves) Andreev and postdoctoral fellow Changwei Yu talk about their exciting new findings on transposon silencing. In this first edition of #ScienceChatIMBA, the three researchers provide closer insights on their findings published in the journal Nature Structural and Molecular Biology (NSMB).
