I work in the Biotechnology Lab at Del Mar College in the Department of Natural Sciences. At Del Mar College we work in collaboration with the Pittsburg bacteriophage institute, and HHMI to isolate, purify, and characterize novel mycobacteriophage (viruses that infect and lyse the causative agent in the disease tuberculosis). I have also spent the past two years working in collaboration with the Laurence Berkeley National Lab, there, I investigated the enzyme biochemistry of DNA repair proteins. Along with the effects that depletion of in DNA interacting enzymes play in co-ordinating cell cycle arrest after damage.
