Dynamic changes in the RNA-protein interactome during stress, development and disease

SupervisorsDavid TollerveyTony Ly

Project description:

Functional interactions between RNAs and proteins underpin gene expression and defects in RNA-protein interactions form the basis of numerous human diseases. RNA binding proteins have important functions at all steps in gene expression, including transcription, RNA processing and mRNA translation, as well as in viral defence mechanisms.
