Structural cell biology
Our research aims to expand the scope of structural biology from the molecular functions of the isolated macromolecular assemblies to the concerted roles that such assemblies play in their cellular context. Our laboratory contributes to this effort in several ways.
3D structure analysis of genomes
Genome structure-function correlations
Image analysis in cryo electron tomography and cryo electron microscopy
Structure determination of macromolecular assemblies
Reaction-diffusion modeling of cellular processes
