Award Description: To support small scale research projects conducted by faculty in primarily baccalaureate degree-granting domestic institutions. Awards are for up to $75,000 for direct costs (plus applicable indirect costs) for periods not to exceed 36 months. The purpose of this supplemental request under the ARRA -060 mechanism is to provide research support for three undergraduates for the summers of fiscal years 2009-2010.
Project Description: The parent grant, 'Regulation of Substrate Binding and Catalysis in tRNase Z ', concerns the regulation of tRNase Z, the pre-tRNA 3' end processing endonuclease. CCA at the 3' end of mature tRNA is a tRNase Z anti-determinant, the mechanism of which has not yet been established. Maintaining a productive effort on this project requires a full-time technician, which consumes almost the entire budget. R15 program goals include research laboratory training of undergraduates. Both goals have been achieved on this and earlier R15 awards to this lab. The purpose of this supplemental request under the ARRA -060 mechanism is to provide research support for three undergraduates for the summers of fiscal years 2009-2010. This would not entail a change in scope of the parent grant since Christopher Wilson would work on Aims 1 and 3, Sabina Paul would work on Aim 2 and Sakshi Katyal, a new student in the lab, would work on Aim 4. Christopher Wilson and Sabina Paul already have research laboratory experience on these projects (since Aug '08 and Feb '09, respectively, so some acceleration in the pace of resarch could be expected.
