RNA Form and Function

RNA is a remarkably versatile biological macromolecule that can encode genetic information, catalyze chemical reactions, scaffold the assembly of large macromolecular machines, and bind small molecules.

How does RNA perform so many biological tasks? The answer lies in its ability to form diverse three-dimensional structures whose complexity rivals that of proteins. This gallery contains RNA structures determined by RBI faculty including the Kieft lab, the Zhao lab, the Asturias lab, and the Vogeli lab.
