New INCITE Project Awarded for 2021

Our group received a new INCITE Award from the U.S. Department of Energy 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 […]

New paper in PLOS Computational Biology

Our paper ‘Alkylpurine Glycosylase D Employs DNA Sculpting as a Strategy to Extrude and Excise Damaged Bases’ was published in PLOS Computational Biology. We employed chain-of-replicas path optimization strategy to determine a minimum energy path (MEP) for flipping out a 3-methyl adenine lesion by the DNA glycosylase AlkD. The path showed that AlkD acts by […]

New PNAS paper on FEN1/DNA clamp complexes

Our collaborative efforts with Berkeley/LBNL have led to a combined experimental/computational publication ‘Repair complexes of FEN1, DNA and Rad9-Hus1-Rad1 are distinguished from their PCNA counterparts by functionally important stability’ currently in press in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science U.S.A.
