Towards a Systematic Approach for Characterizing Regulatory Variation
A growing body of evidence suggests that genetic variants that alter gene expression are responsible for many phenotypic differences across individuals, particularly for the risk of developing common diseases. However, the ...
Predicting the Effects of Missense Variation on Protein Structure, Function, and Evolution
Estimating the effects of missense mutations is a problem with many important applications in a variety of fields, including medical genetics, evolutionary theory, population genetics, and protein structure and design. ...
Single-Molecule Studies of Bacterial Chromosome Organization and Segregation
The bacterial chromosome is dramatically compacted into a subcellular structure called nucleoid. Simultaneously, it must be organized to allow the protein machinery for essential cellular processes to gain access to the ...
