How do macromolecules work in cells?

What do genes look like in the nucleus?

How does pre-mRNA splicing prepare RNA for export from the nucleus?

How do bacteria reduce sulfur for building amino acids and cofactors?

The Stroupe lab is interested in answering these questions using an interdisciplinary biochemical and structural biological approach.

The background on the webpage is an image taken at 60,000 times magnification on a transmission electron microscope (TEM) of cryogenically-preserved human C complex spliceosomes. The spliceosome helps process messenger RNAs while they are still in the nucleus.
