Translational Control across Eukaryotes

Description

Translation is a fundamental process of gene regulation in eukaryotes. Translational control plays a crucial role in diverse cellular processes, such as development, neurogenesis, and responses to stress conditions. Malfunctioning of the translational apparatus has been implicated in cancer. To date, what is known about translation is mostly due to the study of traditional model organisms including mammals, the budding yeast S. cerevisiae, and the fruitfully Drosophila. In recent years, the advent of genome-sequencing projects has provided the opportunity to study diversity and variability of both, the translation apparatus components as well as mechanisms of translational control in other ‘nontraditional’ organisms from diverse phyla.

We invite researchers to submit review and original research articles aiming to explore and better understand the evolutionary complexity and diversity that exists within the eukaryotic translational apparatus. We are very interested in comparative studies identifying components of the translation apparatus in genomes across different phyla, as well as in studies of regulatory mechanisms in nonmodel organisms. Articles describing the discovery of novel layers of translational regulation, or helping to define novel unifying principles of eukaryotic translation, are also very welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Identification and comparison of translation factors across phyla or in specific novel organisms
  • Advances in comparative genomics with a focus on translation
  • Advances in translational control research using nontraditional model organisms
  • Studies on signaling and translation in nontraditional model organisms
  • Studies on translation in nontraditional model organisms with applications on medicine, cancer, and memory
