focus group:

Molecular & Genome Biology of Microbes

research description:

We study the structural and cellular mechanisms of DNA replication, recombination, and repair. Our approaches include X-ray crystallographic studies of key proteins involved in these processes along with biochemical and chemical biological experiments that establish the mechanisms by which genome maintenance is catalyzed and regulated.
