Research Summary: DEAD-box proteins, Ribonucleases and Ribosome Assembly.
Publications: PubMed

Research Interests:

DEAD-box proteins comprise a large class of RNA-remodeling proteins, whose cellular functions are poorly understood. We are interested in determining the cellular targets of two E. coli DEAD-box proteins and the mechanisms through which these proteins regulate RNA function.
