Dame of the Day: Jennifer Doudna

Jennifer Doudna

Today’s Dame of the Day is Jennifer Doudna. As a biochemist, Doudna and her team mapped the three-dimensional structure of the Tetrahymena Group I ribozyme, an integral part of cellular structure. After she relocated from Yale to UC-Berkeley, she divided her time between studying RNA interference, how MicroRNAs impact translation, and the CRISPR system (pockets of DNA with repeating base pairs that, if modified, can impact specific genes).
