Argonaute proteins are the effectors of small RNA-directed RNA silencing. The model plant Arabidopsis thaliana has ten Argonaute proteins with specialized functions. I am interested in the transcriptional control of these Argonautes and their roles in regulatory networks controlling leaf polarity, developmental timing, and antiviral defense.
