RNA Biology: Alain Laederach
Previously an Associate Editor of RNA Biology, Alain Laederach commenced his new role as Editor-In-Chief on 1st April 2022.
Alain is a Professor at the University of North Carolina, Department of Biology. The Laederach Lab is interested in better understanding the relationship between RNA structure and folding dynamics. Alain and his team develop novel computational approaches to analyze and interpret chemical mapping data. Most recently, they have begun investigating the relationship between disease-associated Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) occurring in Human UTRs and their effect on RNA structure.
RNA Biology is an open access international peer-reviewed journal for RNA research including structural biology, genome, transcription, and splicing research.
RNA has played a central role in all cellular processes since the beginning of life: decoding the genome, regulating gene expression, structural biology, mediating molecular interactions, and catalyzing chemical reactions.
This leading journal in the field provides a platform for presenting and discussing all cutting-edge RNA research.
