In Vivo Investigations of the Ribosome Code

Anders H. Lund says: ”The ribosome is the key interpreter of genetic information in all living organisms. However, despite its pivotal role, very little is known about how the ribosome is regulated. The project explores the hypothesis that modifying the ribosomal RNA regulates ribosome function and impacts protein translation. Understanding how the ribosome is regulated to tune translation will provide better understanding of how gene expression programmes are faithfully executed and may provide insight on diseases in which translational control is pathologically hijacked.”
