Her project focusing on understands the biosynthesis of endogenous small interference RNA (siRNA) in C.elegans. Recently, she discovered that there are almost 1/3 of the C.elegans genome has siRNA map to intronic region. Her current work is bioinformatically and biologically investigating the machinery of these newly identified intronic siRNAs. Trang hopes that her work will contribute to enable reading, understanding, and giving direction to alter human genome in improving treatment of genetic diseases. Her project was award the training grant, F30, in 2015 for 6 years. Trang loves cooking, hiking, running, and hosting dinner.
