The Fukunaga lab investigates the mechanism and biology of small silencing RNAs. We try to understand how small silencing RNAs, such as microRNAs (miRNAs), small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) and piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs), are produced and how they function. We use a combination of biochemistry, biophysics, fly genetics, cell culture, X-ray crystallography and next-generation sequencing, in order to understand the biogenesis and function of small silencing RNAs from the atomic to the organismal level.​
