New paper in Scientific Reports

Congratulations to Danilo and team for our new paper in Scientific Reports. In the paper, we describe an improved methodology for the production and purification of ribosomal proteins. Ribosomal proteins are very difficult to work with, but thanks to Danilo’s perseverance, we managed to develop a better method.

I would also like to acknowledge the University of Auckland Summer Research Scholarships scheme. Four summer scholars, José, Jane, Amy and Paris, contributed to this project! Thanks also to Praveen, who helped characterise the proteins.

Finally, I would like to thank our funders of this project – Neurological Foundation of New Zealand and Health Research Council of New Zealand.
