A base is a component of nucleic acids. There are four different bases: adenine, guanine (purines), cytosine and thymine or uracil (pyrimidines). In RNA, thymine is replaced by uracil.
Translation in a biological context is the process in which the base sequence of mRNA is translated into the amino acid sequence of a protein. This process takes place in the ribosomes. Based on a single mRNA molecule, many protein molecules can be synthesised.
The 3D Cell Culture conference series has developed into a ‘family meeting’ for experts active in this field, and will highlight successful applications and newest developments. Success stories of 3D culture applications will be presented as well as newest technologies and innovations. Relevant disease models, applications of 3D models in clinic and industry, predictive cell models for compound characterization and enabling technologies will be covered.
