​About the Lab/Branch

The Genetics and Biochemistry Branch studies the biochemistry, molecular and cell biology of meiotic (homologous) recombination in mice and humans, DNA mismatch repair and protein secretion in bacteria.

​Current Research

Current interests of the lab include:

  • the biochemistry, molecular, and cell biology of meiotic (homologous) recombination in mice and humans;
  • highly conserved DNA repair pathway, DNA mismatch repair; and
  • protein secretion in both pathogenic and non-pathogenic bacteria.
