A novel database presented by researchers at ISU will allow scientists to access information on RNA structures encoded within the human genome. "This will help facilitate basic research into human biology and could pave the way for new medical treatments that target RNA", stated by Walter Moss, assistant professor in the Roy J. Carver Department of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Molecular Biology.
Diane Bassham and Gustavo MacIntosh's current study on a cellular pathway in plants shows a connection to a certain encephalopathy, or the degeneration of neural cells in the brain.
The BBMB scholarship committee is proud to announce Bailey Mooney, Emily Knuth and Jackie Ehrlich as the 2018-2019 Stupka Scholars. All have been very involved with both the B&B Club and as leaders for the Stupka Undergraduate Research Symposium.
Bailey Mooney is a senior, with a double major in Biochemistry and Genetics, and was nominated by her research mentor, Dr. Jeff Trimarchi. She has served as treasurer for both club and Stupka, and is in her second year as a peer mentor for the BBMB Learning Community.
