John Atkins, from the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City, Utah, US, is interested in translational control, and in particular in studying genetic "recoding" phenomena, when codons are redefined for regulatory purposes or to yield an extra product, in order to determine where they occur, understand their functional significance, elucidate the mechanisms involved, and where desirable plot intervention strategies.

He has been invited by Roderic Guigó (CRG)
