Ribosome Binding Site Characterization

TUDelft RBS.png

Part of our project is to measure the effect of various ribosome binding site (RBS) sequences. A RBS sequence is a specific mRNA sequence that folds in such a way that it attracts the ribosome. This ribosome binds to the mRNA molecule and starts translation of the mRNA into protein. Accurate information on how well this binding occurs (The binding strength) can be very useful when designing new biological systems.
