I have been transcribing rRNA with T7 RNA polymerase in E. coli. I would like to estimate how much immature rRNA transcript I am producing relative to that being made on the chromosome. I would also like to estimate how efficiently the T7-transcribed rRNA is being incorporated into active, functional ribosomes.


  1. Specific detection of wild-type and mutant 16s rRNA
  2. Relative quantification of wild-type and mutant 16s rRNA
  3. Evaluation of efficiency of processing of mutant rRNA relative to wild-type rRNA.
  4. Write & Submit paper.
