The faculty’s research spans studies of genome integrity and function at the level of DNA replication and repair, recombination, transcription, translation, and epigenetic regulation in multiple cell and tissue types including stem cells, muscle, lymphocytes, hematopoietic cells, cancer cells, and germ cells. The program is distinguished by interactions between groups that use a broad range of model organisms (bacteria, virus, yeast, flies, worms, mouse, and human cells) and techniques (structural biology, biochemistry, cell biology, single molecule analysis, genetics, genomics, proteomics, and systems analysis).
