In our laboratory we seek to obtain a molecular understanding of how transient protein-nucleic acid recognition events affect enzymatic activity in important biological systems. We use methods of structural biology to study the features of a biological system, and complement the structural data with mechanistic biophysical, biochemical, and molecular biology methods.
