Title of talk or presentation:
How do DNA-binding motor proteins navigate on crowded DNA?

Speaker’s Name and Degrees:
Ilya J. Finkelstein, PhD

Speaker’s Institutional Affiliation:
Columbia University

Description:
Ilya Finkelstein intends to characterize DNA repair using single-molecule biophysics and nucleic acid biochemistry. In particular, he will study the dynamics of multi-protein assemblies that mediate homologous recombination and how these enzymes move on DNA and negotiate highly condensed DNA-protein substrates.
