CURRENT POSITION

The PIWI-interacting RNA (piRNA) pathway has recently been implied in antiviral defense in Aedes aegypti. These mosquitoes serve as insect vectors for arboviruses that cause life-threatening diseases such as Dengue, Chikungunya and Yellow Fever. My project evolves around the identification and characterization of (co)factors involved in biogenesis of viral piRNAs and their mode of action.
