Project Description

Many processes implicated in the regulation of DNA transcription are driven by highly modular protein-protein interaction networks that are not exclusively maintained by the well-structured protein domains but also by highly dynamic regions of interacting proteins. The aim of the doctoral project will be an identification as well as investigation of the physiological and pathological roles of these transient interactions in chromatin remodeling and transcription regulation using a highly interdisciplinary approach, including protein biochemistry, biophysics, cell, and structural biology.
