Research Summary

Understanding the mechanism of protein synthesis is the central focus of research. Our approach has involved the use of genetics, biochemistry and X-ray crystallography to correlate high resolution structures with function in mutant ribosomes.

Past or Present Projects Available:

Suppression of streptomycin dependence in E. Coli; Investigation of the structure of rRNA; Identification of essential bases in 23S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) by mutational analysis; Missense Suppressors in the Extreme Thermophile Thermus Thermophilus
