Prof. Davey fundamental research interest focuses on understanding the structural and dynamical features of chromatin assembly and how this could yield unique therapeutic possibilities. Davey’s lab has analyzed nucleosome structure and stability with many different DNA fragments to derive a general mechanical model that helps explain and predict the sequence-dependent properties of this system. His ... Read more about "X-Ray Crystal Structure of a Chromatosome—the Fundamental Nucleosome-Linker Histone Assembly of Chromatin"
