We retreated to the countryside for a few days of scientific discussions at Björnbacka. We bring back new memories and new ideas.
Our research group is interested in understanding how RNAs change their structures in order to perform function. Until recently, only snapshots of molecules could be observed, hiding their mode of operation. We employ Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), and other biophysical techniques, to investigate the molecular mechanism of RNA function. When function of these molecular machines becomes apparent, it also provides a variety of unique new drug targets. The lab develops methods in NMR and RNA biochemistry to address these questions. Current projects include viral, bacterial and eukaryotic regulatory RNAs, e.g. microRNAs, ribosomal RNAs or RNA from HBV.
We’re welcoming our newest postdoctoral fellow Reiner who did his master’s and PhD at the University of Innsbruck.
How will scientific publishing work in the future? Join us for an online discussion! (Link below.) Is something broken in scientific publishing? If so, how do we need to tweak the system to make it work in the long run? Crastina is happy to invite three persons with deep insight into the publishing industry to a live,…
Congratulations Hannes and Judith on their protocol “Practical Aspects of Sample Preparation and Setup of 1H R1ρ Relaxation Dispersion Experiments of RNA”, now available as video too!
We’re welcoming our new postdoctoral fellow Joanna who is joining us after a postdoctoral fellowship at the Medical University of Warsaw, Poland.
Juliane successfully finished her master thesis in the group and we wish her all the best for the future!
Congratulations Hannes, Hampus, and Lorenzo on their protocol “Production of Structured RNA Fragments by In Vitro Transcription and HPLC Purification”.
