Welcome to Harold Kim Lab!

We are an experimental biophysics group studying the biophysics of the genome in the School of Physics at Georgia Institute of Technology
. A meter-long DNA is tightly packaged into chromosomes inside a micron-wide nucleus of a cell. Therefore, the genetic information is difficult to locate and process. Despite this formidable challenge, cells constantly convert the genetic code into appropriate amounts of proteins in a timely manner based on external signals. This interesting phenomenon is at the core of our research.
