We are interested in protein synthesis machinery. Our model organism is Escherichia coli. In the center of studies is a molecular nanomachine, the ribosome. We study structure-function relationship of the ribosome, ribosome biogenesis, ribosome repair under chemical stress, and biosynthesis of ribosome components. Both, the rRNA and the r-proteins are under study. In addition, we analyze the effects of certain antimicrobials to the ribosome biogenesis.
