Parasitology

 

Parasitology research is focused in three areas of intense interest. The Read and Williams laboratories investigate aspects of Trypanosoma kinetoplast RNA synthesis and processing and mitochondrial protein synthesis and assembly. The Read laboratory concentrates on the molecular aspects of RNA editing. The Williams laboratory is studying the role of unique RNA-binding proteins in ribosomal biogenesis. The Williams laboratory has yielded new insights into Trypanosoma nucleic acid binding proteins. The Read and Williams groups have also collaborated on a project focused on post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in Plasmodium.
