Researchers explore how a cell’s protein-making factories are assembled

Researchers explore how a cell’s protein-making factories are assembledThe intricate dynamics of ribosome assembly, an elaborate and carefully coordinated process that happens continuously inside cells, are not yet fully understood. Using a new technique they devised, researchers have mapped out the proteins involved in the early stages of the construction of a ribosome. More »
