Dr. Blanchette became interested in RNA processing as an undergraduate mentored by splicing expert Benoit Chabot at the Université de Sherbrooke in Québec. Receiving his B.Sc. in biology at Sherbrooke in 1994, Blanchette remained in the Chabot lab for his graduate work, where he defined how splicing was regulated in the hnRNP A1 gene. After spending years understanding just one gene, Blanchette became interested in genomic approaches to deciphering global rules governing gene expression. He joined the lab of Drosophila geneticist Don Rio at UC Berkeley, where he developed a microarray platform to determine how populations of Drosophila pre-RNAs are processed. When he moved to the Stowers Institute, Blanchette continued to exploit the intersection of genetics and genomics to investigate how the cooperative action of splicing actors regulates genes expression.
