Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Feb 1, 2011
End Date: Jan 31, 2016
To develop and test models for predicting and controlling translational efficiency of gene expression, and to design and carry out experiments to validate model predictions.
Computer models will be developed using free energy of ribosome binding as a factor in translational efficiency. Models will be tested with collaborators using recombinant plasmids in Escherichia coli.
