How does RNA mediate translation?

Translation is the process of creating proteins from an mRNA. However, there are non-coding RNAs and RNA modifications that can influence the rate of this process. In this project, you will review primary literature and create a visual model for how RNA mediates translation. You can also explore how translation is dysregulated in diseases such as cancer.
