NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The National Institute of General Medical Sciences has awarded a Jackson Laboratory research team a five-year, $2.1 million grant to develop a computational system for studying the relationship between RNA structure and function.

With the funding, Jax investigator Zhengqing Ouyang and colleagues aim to create a novel analytic framework that uses high-throughput databases to infer RNA structure at the transcriptome level and enables analyses in specific cellular model systems, the grant's abstract states.
