Center for Eukaryotic Gene Regulation - About the Center

More information about the Center for Eukaryotic Gene Regulation

The Center utilizes methods from both molecular biology and biochemistry to examine the structure and function of factors responsible for gene regulation.

 

By combining techniques such as X-ray crystallography and high resolution sequencing, it is possible to gain detailed insight into structures as well as the in vivo/in vitro functions of regulatory proteins.

 

Researchers at the Center benefit from having access in one location to staff and faculty who are experienced in all of these techniques, making collaboration between labs a common, beneficial occurrence.
