Abstract: Our lab investigates structure and function of RNA. RNA plays many roles in biological systems spanning genetic, enzymatic and regulatory functions. Many of these roles depend on spatial structure or specific RNA-RNA interactions. We follow an integrative approach to analyze data obtained by sequencing, NMR, X-ray crystallography, chemical probing and crosslinking experiments as well as molecular simulations. Relating structure, dynamics and function allows us to identify RNA elements that are crucial for the life cycle of viruses. In this overview, we show recent results of our research into RNA interactions and structure in Dengue, Zika, SARS-CoV-2, Chikungunya and Influenza viruses.
