Towards an Evolutionary Synthetic Biology
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-11-10)
Evolution is the unifying theory behind biology, and has entered the mainstream of computational and molecular biology as a result of genomics. Nevertheless, evolutionary ideas today only barely influence the practice ...
The Two Unknowns of Nucleosomes: How They Are Formed and How They Are Removed
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-03-13)
In eukaryotes, the genomic DNA is highly packaged inside the nucleus of a cell by forming beads-on-a string-like structure called nucleosomes. The propensity of a ~150-bp duplex DNA to form a nucleosome, termed the ...
Evolutionary Role of DNA Methylation in Animal Genomes
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-10-21)
DNA methylation is a primary epigenetic mechanism involved in several regulatory and developmental processes. In this talk, I will focus on the molecular evolutionary role of DNA methylation. An important property of DNA ...
