She uses both experimental and computational methods to dissect the molecular details of this mode of gene regulation.  This work was published in 2007 in Nature.

Dates for Fall Break

Contributed by Brian Scholten on 08/28/2009

The Future of VHS

Contributed by Mark Hine on 08/28/2009 

The VHS format has served us well but, over the past decade, has been replaced by DVD and digital media. The popularity of the later coupled with decreased demand has lead to the universal discontinuation of VHS media and VHS player manufacturing. While VHS players and recorders will remain on the market, the current supply is projected to be exhausted soon. Parts and replacement equipment for VHS machines will be harder to acquire. Quality blank VHS media will soon be difficult to procure.
