BLOOM LAB PUBLISHES IN “METHODS IN CELL BIOLOGY”

Jolien Verdaasdonk (now Jolien Tyler), a former graduate student in Professor Kerry Bloom’s lab and now Director of the Microscopy Core Facility at the University of Colorado Boulder, together with Josh Lawrimore (current graduate student) wrote a detailed methodological account of how to determine absolute protein numbers using fluorescence microscopy. The work has been published in Methods in Cell Biology, and is entitled “Determining absolute protein numbers by quantitative fluorescence microscopy”. READ MORE >>


KERRY BLOOM’S RESEARCH PUBLISHED IN “NUCLEUS”

The journal Nucleus has published a research paper entitled “Polymer models of interphase chromosomes” which is a collaboration between Professor Kerry Bloom and Assistant Professor Paula Vasquez (University of South Carolina, Department of Mathematics). This is a joint project between applied math and biology to develop models based on statistical mechanics of polymers that predict the behavior of chromosomes in living cells.  READ MORE >>
