"In love with the genetic code", the new video in the series Meet Our Scientists, presents the research performed by Lluís Ribas on the genetic code and protein synthesis, both of which are essential for life.

Ribas highlights the impact of the evolution of the enzyme ADAT, described in  the journal Cell in 2012. The appearance of ADAT was decisive for the separation of species into the three domains of life, and it could be of biomedical and biotech relevance.
