I am a senior researcher in the group of Johannes Hanson. Our lab is interested in how protein translation is regulated in plants. To investiagte plant translational regulation, I am developing plant ribosome sequencing (ribo-seq) and data analysis pipeline with help of UPSC bioinformatics platform. Ribo-seq is a powerfull technique, in which the ribosome protected mRNA fragments (ribosome footprints) are sequenced that provide information to better understand how translation is regulated in plants.
