SSA 2017 has ended
SSA could not be possible without the generous support of Drs. Herbert A. and Betty Lou Lubs and the Science, Society, and the Arts Research Conference Endowment. We are deeply grateful!

Translation is the final target of gene expression and ultimately determines the phenotype of individuals. Translation converts the language of nucleic acids that are encoded into short-lived mRNA into the language of proteins. Biological enzymes, called ribosomes, are the mechanism that allows this conversion to happen. Multiple ribosomes can translate a single mRNA and a disruption in translation can lead to collisions between ribosomes. This research seeks to improve our model to more accurately predict where ribosomal collisions occur by analyzing the characteristics of regions where collisions are found.
