Brief description The turning on and off of genes often involves physical interactions between the gene and other parts of the DNA that lie far away from the gene. Disruption of this gene regulation is likely to contribute to a wide range of diseases, including heart disease and cancer. This project seeks to better understand the complex puzzle of how the correct DNA connections are chosen over the large number of possible mis-connections, by trying to find the fundamental laws that control DNA-DNA interactions.
