m6A, RNA turnover


Štěpánka Vaňáčová has been working in Brno since 2008 when she established her own research group at Masaryk University. Together with her colleagues, she studies ribonucleic acid (RNA) that plays an essential role in living organisms in regulating various processes. Its different types, for example, determine when certain specific tissues start developing in an embryo. Vaňáčová and her team analyse what mechanisms in a cell control whether the correct RNA has been formed and, possibly, what mechanisms are responsible for eliminating the incorrect RNA.
