Many biological processes can be studied at the atomic level where macromolecular structures and interactions may be analyzed in exquisite detail. In our laboratory, crystallographic analysis is combined with biochemical and biophysical experiments to explain biological functions and observe specific ligand binding to proteins. We are primarily interested in proteins interacting with nucleic acids, involved in vesicle transport, or linked to disease states.
