Our group was among the 47 recipients of INCITE Awards from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. The projects originate in national laboratories, academia, and industry, and encompass a remarkable range of scientific inquiry. Ours was among the projects in the areas of Biological Sciences/Biophysics. Here are the 2020 INCITE Announcement and the list of 2020 […]
Our INCITE Award was competitively renewed for 2020 by the DOE Office of Science. The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program accelerates scientific discoveries and technological innovations by awarding, on a competitive basis, time on the world’s fastest supercomputers to researchers with large-scale, computationally intensive projects that address “grand challenges” in science and engineering. Our […]
Oak Ridge National Lab highlights our recent work on the transcription preinitiation complex (PIC): “Summit Charts a Course to Uncover the Origins of Genetic Diseases”.
Congratulation to Chunli Yan and Tom Dodd who published a new paper in the journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology on the molecular architecture and functional dynamics of the transcription preinitiation complex (PIC). Yan, C.; Dodd, T.; Tainer, J.A.; He, Y.; Tsutakawa, S.E.; & Ivanov, I.* Transcription preinitiation complex structure and dynamics provide insight into genetic diseases Nature Structural […]
Congratulation to group alumnus Dr. Max Xu and Dr. Chunli Yan and who published a new paper in the Journal of Molecular Biology that unravels the common origins of DNA clamp proteins’ subunit interface stability with implications for the function of these proteins in DNA replication. Perumal, S.K.; Xu, X.; Yan, C.; Ivanov, I. & Benkovic, S.J. Recognition of a […]
Congratulation to Dr. Kathleen Carter who published a new paper in the jounal Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics detailing the mechanism of sequence-specific DNA binding of a designed small molecule binder DB2277.
