RNA chemistry and evolution

Led by Dr. Peter J. Unrau, our research group studies the chemical and biological properties of RNA.

Current research interests include:

In vitro selection of ribozymes able to perform novel small molecule reactions.
• Selection of ribozymes able to capture chemical energy.
• Development of new in vitro selection technologies.
• Understanding the regulatory role of RNA in bacterial and eukaryotic systems.
