The Double Life of RNA

Summary

In four lectures, Nobel laureate Thomas R. Cech, PhD, discusses the ability of RNA to act as more than just an intermediary between DNA and proteins.

In these lectures, Dr. Cech explains the current state of knowledge of RNA in chemistry and in structural and cell biology and discusses the implications of ribozymes. This multidisciplinary view characterizes the approach of Dr. Cech's research group to RNA investigation. Dr. Cech also tells the story of the discovery of RNA catalysis, which led to his receiving the 1989 Nobel Prize in chemistry.
