Ribogenetics and RNA Biochemistry

RNA Biochemistry in Dictyostelium discoideum

In current research projects we investigate:

  • Biogenesis of ribosomal RNA
  • Dicer-related nucleases
  • tRNA modifications and the elongator complex
  • Retrotransposons
  • RNA-dependent RNA polymerases

 

Catalytic RNA: Hammerhead Ribozyme Motifs

In current research projects we investigate:

  • distribution of genomically encoded motifs
  • Evolutionary conservation of sequence and structure
