Using ribosome profiling to improve our understanding of gene regulation

To measure changes in the expression of the genes we normally compare mRNA abundances using high throughput RNA sequencing data (RNA-Seq), as a proxy for the changes in the encoded proteins. However, it is well known that the correlation between … Continue reading
