I am a PDRA working with Professor Reidun Twarock at the University of York investigating RNA-Capsid interactions in single stranded RNA viruses. My work focuses on the development of software packages for the analysis of x-ray hydroxyl radical RNA footprinting data. This data, when analysed, allows us to examine the secondary RNA inside and outside the viruses, with millisecond resolution.
