Structure of biomolecules dictates function

Our group makes use of a variety of biophysical and biochemical approaches to elucidate the mechanistic basis of functioning of biomolecules, in isolation or in complex with interacting partners. Insights obtained using atomic resolution structures determined through X-ray crystallography are complemented with in vitro and/or in vivo data to glean functional information on multiple systems. 


The two major projects of our lab include:
