Upon reading David Goodsell's article about the Initiation Factor eIF4E, I felt inspired to learn more about trial anti-cancer drugs that target the translation initiation complex.

I read various molecular biology and biochemistry peer-reviewed journal articles about the translation initiation complex and look for the protein structures on the Protein Data Bank.

Step 2: Drafts and Iterations
