Honors sophomore Ansley Elkins is conducting some fascinating research on transfer RNAs this summer, under the mentorship of Biology professor (and Honors Advising Fellow) Dr. Renaud Geslain. Check out the post from our friends at the College of Charleston School of Sciences & Mathematics to learn more!
This summer, rising sophomore, and Honors student Ansley Elkins is working with Dr. Renaud Geslain to study transfer RNAs (tRNAs), a class of macromolecules that are expressed in all living organisms and that are essential for the biosynthesis of proteins.
Ansley's research project aims at establishing the first atlas of tRNA expression in mouse tissues. So far, she dissected 10 different mouse organs, generated nearly 30 replicates, and successfully optimized the protocols for the isolation of their tRNAs. During the second part of her summer internship, Ansley will monitor the abundance of 56 tRNA species across those different tissue samples using a tRNA microarray technique developed in the lab.
Once her analysis platform is up and running, she will introduce new variables such as different stages of development and different model of diseases.
