Gene translation is a central process in all living organisms. Thus, developing a better understanding of this complex process and its computational modeling have ramifications to every biomedical discipline. We develop computational models of gene translation and employ evolutionary systems biology approaches to study how its efficiency is encoded in the transcripts. The talk will include details about our models and several very recent discoveries about the way evolution shapes the translation efficiency of transcripts.
