Belfort Lab


Dr. Belfort’s research interests are in splicing, mobility and evolution of self-splicing introns and inteins, and their application to biotechnology and medicine.  Her laboratory takes biochemical, genetic and structural approaches to probe the function of these mobile genetic elements.  Recent studies have suggested that some of these elements are adaptive and the work has focused on their responsiveness to environmental cues.
