Biochemistry and Genetics of Eukaryotic RNA Expression
National Institutes of Health, USA

Basic mechanisms of RNA production will be investigated, using a highly
conserved pathway of tRNA biogenesis as a paradigm of eukaryotic gene
expression.  This pathway includes transcription, RNA processing,
intranuclear trafficking of RNA-protein complexes, and signal
transduction.  A multidisciplinary approach, involving genetics,
molecular biology and biochemistry, and a novel reporter system in
fission yeast, will be used.  Background in molecular biology and
biochemistry is essential.
