The Molecular Choreography of Translation

Lecture | March 25 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 775 Tan Hall


Dr. Joseph (Jody) Puglisi, Stanford University

Department of Chemistry


Translation of the genetic code is performed by the ribosome, which coordinates a complex choreography involving factors, mRNA and the ribosome itself. We have developed methods that allow correlation of conformational and compositional dynamics during translation in real time at the single-molecule level. We have delineated the basal dynamics of individual steps in translation (initiation,...   More >
