JULIE KORDA HOLSCLAW AND JEFF SEKELSKY PUBLISH IN GENETICS

Julie Korda Holsclaw and Jeff Sekelsky published a paper titled “Annealing of Complementary DNA Sequences During Double-Strand Break Repair in Drosophila Is Mediated by the Ortholog of SMARCAL1” in Genetics. This paper describes a previously unappreciated role for the Marcal1 protein in a critical step in DNA repair. Mutations in human SMARCAL1 cause a hereditary genome instability disorder. After defending on “pi day” (3/14), Julie will become a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Human Disease Modeling at Duke University. READ MORE >>
