About this book

RNAs form complexes with proteins and other RNAs. The RNA-infrastructure represents the spatiotemporal interaction of these proteins and RNAs in a cell-wide network. "RNA Infrastructure and Networks" brings together these ideas to illustrate the scope of RNA-based biology, and how connecting RNA mechanisms is a powerful tool to investigate regulatory pathways. This book is but a taste of the wide range of RNA-based mechanisms that connect in the RNA infrastructure.

LESLEY J. COLLINS is a Senior Research Fellow in the Institute of Fundamental Sciences at Massey University, New Zealand. With an early background in molecular biology she now uses that knowledge in evolutionary genomics and bioinformatics. Her research interests focus on the evolution of RNA networks, especially on how they relate to the evolution of ancient eukaryotes. With the rise of new sequencing technology she was involved in the establishment of next generation sequencing at Massey University. In her spare time she is a bioinformatics consultant, a practitioner of Tai Chi, a knitter and an avid reader.
