Research Interests

Our research group investigates biomolecular functions, especially those of DNA, RNA, and proteins. The researches carried out in our group are centered on nucleic acid interactions for the hybridization and folding, RNA functions, and roles of the molecular environment on biomolecular functions. We have been involved in these studies by using designed oligonucleotides and different experimental approaches ranging from the physical chemistry to the molecular biology. We also have started to investigate the mechanism of specificity and redundancy in the molecular recognitions by nuclear receptor proteins.
