I am interested in chromatin architecture. Currently we are investigating the possible role of single strand breaks and RNA/DNA hybrids in transciption regulation. Furthermore we are investigating the effect of histone destabilization to chromatin structure and function.
Knowledge using Confocal and Laser Scanning Microscopy. We have developed a nucleosome elution assay in our lab, recently published article below. DNA combing.
We have no access to superresolution microscopes yet.
