We study how organisms respond to their environment, focusing on molecular mechanisms used by fungi. We collect and analyze genome-scale datasets to understand how fungi dynamically reorganize their RNA and protein to adapt to environmental change. This includes how fungi adapt to infect human hosts.

Disambiguation: This is the Edward Wallace Lab studying RNA and Systems Biology in Fungi. It is not to be confused with the Stephen Wallace Lab studying Chemical and Synthetic Biology, also in Edinburgh.

Our paper on Ssd1 structure and function is published at Nucleic Acids Research!.

The review process was rewarding, and led to some new experiments where we map a change in the RNA-binding site of the Ssd1 protein.
