Reinterpreting the Genetic Code: How to Do It and Why You Might Want to
The genetic code, elucidated in the 1960s through the work of Nirenberg, Ochoa, Khorana and their coworkers, provides a set of molecular instructions for translating nucleic acids into proteins. Over the last decade, cells have been outfitted with modified translational machinery that enables the participation of an expanded set of amino acids in protein synthesis. These developments have provided a basis for powerful new approaches to macromolecular design and to spatially and temporally resolved analysis of protein synthesis in complex biological systems.
In collaboration with the following colleges and schools, institutes and programs:
