David Goldberg CS 1950 Directed Study. RNA are the building blocks for life RNA is read by ribosome's which then create a functional product.(i.e. protein that the cell needs) Similarly to lines of code, RNA is instructions on how to build the most fundamental parts of a living thing.
CS 1950 Directed Study
Alternative pre-mRNA splicing generates widespread transcript diversity by specifying the inclusion or exclusion of sequences encoding protein functional domains. We are interested in understanding how these mechanisms are coordinated in the nervous system to tailor the structure of protein molecules for their specific roles at the synapse relating to neuronal communication and plasticity.
The sequences that I will be dealing with include the possible characters:
