New regulatory functions for ancient RNA-modifying enzymesWendy Gilbert, Professor of Biology, MIT
Research:
The proteins of a cell are the primary determinants of cellular form and function. Regulation of the proteome is therefore the ultimate goal of signaling pathways that connect cell physiology to internal and external environmental cues. We study the molecular mechanisms and physiological functions of translational control of gene expression using genome-wide translation state profiling, molecular genetics, and biochemistry.
