Help:Ribosome Binding Sites
A ribosome binding site (RBS) is a segment of the 5' (upstream) part of an mRNA molecule that binds to the ribosome to position the message correctly for the initiation of translation. The RBS controls the accuracy and efficiency with which the translation of mRNA begins.
