Alma Karlsson

PhD student, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Wilhelmsson Research Group

Alma is a doctoral student in the Wilhelmsson Research Group and works with fluorescent base analogues, that is, chemically modified building blocks for RNA and DNA. The goal of developing these internal fluorescent labels is among other things to improve in vitro and in cellulo studies of nucleic acid-based therapeutics. The work involves enzymatic RNA incorporation of these fluorescent base analogues and photophysical characterization of the RNA product. Alma’s project additionally involves investigation of protein translatability of the resulting fluorescent messenger-RNA.
