CURRENT RESEARCH:

Megan Garber is studying DNA binding motifs in response regulator proteins classified within two component systems (TCS). Utilizing liquid handling robotics and next generation sequencing, she is developing high throughput methods to elucidate DNA binding motifs in order to expound upon the functions of these proteins. Insights into the working of organisms at the genetic level are of interest to LBL and ENIGMA due to their existence at sites contaminated by nuclear waste.
