Abstract: The cell is the most complex and fascinating machine in known existence, with diverse phenotypic states primarily governed by the physical properties of the genome itself, and the physical interactions with macromolecules encoded therein. My research interests focus on understanding this physical genome both by developing and applying methods to probe 1) the physical compaction and folding of the genome itself, and manner in which this topology and nucleoprotein composition influences biological state; and 2) the relationship between nucleic acid sequence and the biophysical interactions with other macromolecules.
