Molecular Biophysics Laboratory
We study life by determining three-dimensional structures of biomacromolecular complexes by using cryo-electron microscopy. In particular, we are interested in (1) Transcription - a central process of life maintenance by copying genetic information from DNA to RNA, (2) the human microbiome - an amazing ecosystem dwelling in our body. We look at how molecules interact with each other in these two areas.
