We are interested in RNA and mitochondria, especially a natually-occurring Neurospora mitochondrial plasmid that encodes a catalytic RNA called the VS ribozyme. We are currently studying how such plasmids move between mitochondria, and whether they may be useful as vectors for genetic transformation of mitochondria.
