Hashim Al-Hashimi, Associate Professor, 4028a Chem 1055, (734-615-3361), email@example.com. Our laboratory applies solution state NMR spectroscopy to investigate the molecular basis of RNA function in processes ranging from transcriptional activation and translation to genome packaging and reverse transcription. We make extensive use of new NMR techniques involving measurements of residual dipolar couplings in determining global aspects of RNA structure, dynamics and interaction. A central goal is to develop and apply NMR techniques for determining high-resolution RNA structures as a function of time and other reaction coordinates. Research involves biochemical preparation/purification of isotopically labeled RNA samples, design of NMR experiments, and development of theoretical frameworks for analyzing data.
