Abstract: Translational control of gene expression plays an essential role during development, response to stress and a wide range of cellular processes. However, the key mRNA features that distinguish efficiently translated from poorly translated mRNAs remain largely unknown. This talk will describe the development of direct analysis of ribosome targeting (DART) and its use both in discovering novel regulatory elements within 5′ untranslated regions (5′ UTRs) as well as revealing unexpected behaviors from features that were previously thought to be well understood.
