Description of Research: We use both genetic and biochemical approaches to
functions of genes involved in DNA double strand break repair and damage
mechanisms. One of such genes is the Drosophila p53 tumor suppressor homolog.
also interested in identifying repair genes that are specific to higher
eukaryotes, and use the
gene targeting by homologous recombination method (Rong and Golic, Science
generate mutants, which would facilitate the studies of their functions.
