meredithcorleybcbCongratulations to BCB Graduate Student Meredith Corley (Alain Laederach Lab) for her paper in Elife titled “Selecting against accidental RNA interactions.” In the manuscript she discusses a novel concept for bacterial mRNAs, specifically that they evolve sequences to avoid accidental interactions with abundant non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). This presents a novel molecular paradigm to consider when studying the structure of ncRNAs and mRNAs, as such accidental interactions can in some cases significantly reduce protein expression.
