Cells have developed elaborate mechanisms to minimize errors in gene expression. These fall into two broad categories: 1) fidelity mechanisms intrinsic to the gene expression machinery that minimize errors during transcription, RNA pro-cessing, and translation, and 2) surveillance mechanisms that scan the products of the gene expression machinery for errors and correct them. I am broadly interested the mechanistic basis of how the components of the large, RNA-protein complexes involved in gene expression maintain fidelity, and how aberrant versions of these complexes can cause and contribute to human diseases.
