Scientific summary

I am interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms required during ribonucleoparticles (RNP) assembly and specially during ribosomes synthesis. To study these mechanisms, I integrate different information coming from in vivo genetics (yeast), large throughput analysis of protein/RNA interactions, biochemistry analysis as well as structural study.
