Julia Feichtinger's research focus lies on the large-scale analyses of transcriptomics and (epi)genomics data, in particular relating to long non-coding RNAs.
Exploiting the large amount of available sequencing data enables us to construct a comprehensive picture of gene expression patterns across tissues, diseases and cell types and, therefore, will help us to better understand the underlying mechanisms of gene expression regulation and its dysregulation in diseases.
Advances in this field will greatly promote molecular biology and clinical/biomedical research. Furthermore, we support biologists with biostatistics and bioinformatics analyses.
FWF Project T 923-B26 - Antisense and Allele-specific Transcription in Human Cancer January 2018 - June 2021
We are investigating two widespread transcriptional phenomena, antisense and allele-specific transcription, in a large-scale study. Antisense transcripts are at least partially complementary to a corresponding (mainly protein-coding) sense transcript and can have diverse functional roles in gene regulation (e.g., modifying epigenetic marks). This genomic arrangement also clearly suggests that antisense transcripts are mainly involved in allele-specific gene regulation/silencing. We aim to construct a comprehensive picture of these processes in a large panel of cancer samples and healthy controls by making use of the current wealth of transcriptomics and (epi)genomics data provided in the constantly growing public repositories. This will not only lead to new insights into gene regulation and provide new diagnostic/prognostic marker and drug target candidates for clinical applications but could also change the paradigm on how we conduct gene expression analyses in the future.
