How genes express themselves12-02-2019
The DNA in our cells contains the information necessary for our body to function. In order to have an effect though, this information needs to be translated into proteins. PhD student Ruiqi Han studied how cells regulate the complex molecular processes that play a role here. He found a direct link between the transcription of DNA into a messenger (mRNA) and the regulation of translations of this message into a functional protein. On Thursday he will defend his thesis. Good Luck Ruiqi!
