Our research focuses on several aspects of DNA replication and gene transciption using methods of crystallography and other biochemistry and biophysics. Current research areas include structural basis for anti-HIV drug toxicity, mechanism for gene expression in mitochondria, and bioengineering of T7 RNA polymerase for new functions
