  • Planning and Carrying out Investigations

 
  1. Clarify and define the mechanism of split inteins in context of neuroscience research.

  2. Define the role of split inteins across domains Eukarya, Bacteria, and Archaea, as well as viruses.

  3. Apply the concept of split inteins to addressing important questions in neuroscience research.

  4. Predict the effect of a loss-of-function mutation on the molecular mechanism of split-intein function.

  5. Construct a molecular model of split-intein molecular action.
