Evolution of the pentatricopeptide repeat (PPR) protein family in plants

By Daniel Bartels • February 18th, 2015

The growth and development of living organisms is largely determined by the genes they contain, but converting the genetic information into biological activity requires intermediary processes involving ribonucleic acid (RNA) and proteins that bind to and process this RNA. This project aims to understand how the largest class of RNA-binding protein in plants recognise theirmore…
