Our lab is interested in chromosome dynamics in bacteria.

Our research primarily focuses on a set of highly conserved factors in chromosome biology, including the parABS partitioning system and the SMC condensin complex.

Specific research directions include:

  • Chromosome organization and segregation during the replication cycle
  • Identification and characterization of novel factors involved in chromosome biology
  • Molecular mechanism of chromosome packaging
  • Chromosome folding during growth and development

Research areas:

  • Chromatin, Chromosomes, and Genome Integrity
  • Genomics and Bioinformatics
  • Microbial Cell Biology and Environmental Responses
  • Microbial Interactions and Pathogenesis

Research Interests:

  • chromosome dynamics, bacterial cell biology
