    Research Summary/In Plain Language

    Research in Plain Language

    We design, optimize, and develop methods to change proteins and nucleic acids to enable studies of the physical and structural properties that are essential for their function. We study the function of biological molecules, which participate in communication within and between cells, in gene expression and in regulating the replication and spread of viruses.
