Research Description
Our research group is devoted to elucidating the architecture and mechanism of macromolecular complexes and assemblies with cryo-electron microscopy. More specifically, we are interested in:
1. Structure and mechanism of interactions between cytoskeleton and membrane systems;
2. Structure and mechanism of macromolecular complexes in RNA metabolism;
3. Cryo-electron microscopy new method development and application.
