Chromosome Structure/DNA Damage Resistance

My laboratory is interested in the control of UV and DNA damage resistance pathways at the level of gene regulation in Saccharomyces cervisiae. The main focus of my research is the role of chromatin structure in regulating the expression of DNA damage inducible genes. A secondary interest in the regulation of UV resistance pathways at the post-transcriptional level.
