Small and large non-coding RNAs have proven regulatory functions in many important biological processes of eukaryotes; however their role in the pathogenesis of human infectious diseases is fairly unexplored. Our research focuses on defining the structure, function and regulation of expression of various non-coding RNAs in eukaryotic unicellular pathogens Plasmodium and Trypanosoma sp., responsible for Malaria and African Trypanosomiasis in humans.
