Elizabeth H. Kellogg
Department and Program Affiliations:
I use Cryo-EM to study the structure of macromolecular complexes that reorganize DNA within the genome, as well as how crucial cellular factors protect genome integrity through the formation of higher-order chromatin structure.
Current research project:
I am working to determine the atomic structure of unique transposases in order to learn more about mechanisms of transposition, an important process by which genome sequences are re-arranged and organisms evolve.
