At the heart of the cell, in the nucleus, proteins and nucleic acids come together to maintain and express our genetic information. The interplay of proteins and nucleic acids in both genetic and epigenetic pathways forms the research focus in the Van Ingen group. How do their structures, motions and interactions come together to elicit function? The group’s main research line is centered on the molecular basis of chromatin function at the level of its repeating unit, the nucleosome.
