Description: The publication of the atomic structures of the 50S and 30S ribosomal subunits in 2000 revolutionized our understanding of protein synthesis. In my talk I will focus on our work, initially on the 30S subunit and subsequently on the entire 70S ribosome, focusing on how the ribosome facilitates the accurate translation of the genetic code.
