Research Interests

I am currently working on a computer-based high-resolution graphic representation of a double-stranded short DNA molecule whose helix density is slightly less than that of the normal B type DNA (10.0 vs. 10.4 helical turns per 100 base pairs). This particular image of a single DNA molecule (in horizontal position) will have the unusual property of appearing in 3-dimensions when viewed by the naked eye.

I work on the publication of a study aimed at simplifying the general mechanism of enzymatic action as taught to biochemistry graduate students and medical students.

I am also interested in setting up a World Wide Web "home page" on our networking computer workstation that would allow users on the internet from all around the world to connect to us and view 3-dimensional H-curves (space curves representing DNA sequences) of very long DNA sequences of their own choice.

Using the method of H curves (developed in our own laboratory) I am also working on a study concerning the detection of genetic "hot spots of recombination" on very long DNA sequences.
