Dana Rosansky is joining the Purse Lab, fresh after finishing her B.A. in Biochemistry from the University of San Diego. Dana worked with Prof. Tammy Dwyer at USD on NMR studies on the structure of chemically modified DNA. Now she’s shifting her focus to design and create these DNA modifications herself! Dana’s research will focus on fluorescent modifications of DNA and RNA that will shed light (literally!) on the regulatory mechanisms that control the expression of the genetic code. Welcome, Dana!
