Research in a Nutshell 

The Kudla lab  combines synthetic biology, next-generation sequencing, and computational modelling to study the relationships between RNA sequence, structure, expression, and function. The group focuses on the study of codon usage bias, RNA folding, and RNA interactions. We believe that a detailed understanding of the sequence-function relationship for selected model transcripts will uncover principles applicable to many RNAs.
