Aims of the Fellowship
The project's purpose is to determine the method by which FANCJ binds to DNA and  unwinds G4 Quadruplexes.  I hope to learn the basics of the single molecule assay used by Maria Spies' lab, as well as come to a greater understanding of single molecule interactions, especially as they relate to DNA Helicases.
