What do you do when your DNA is broken? Call for repair. The cell needs a healthy DNA so to faithfully read instruction carried in our genes. Our DNA daily undergoes physical damage as we interact with the environment. The cell has evolved a fascinating system made up of proteins that signal and repair broken DNA. My work
focused on the two protein enzymes called ATM and ATR. I was hoping to get more functional insights by studying the molecular architecture of ATM/R using the electron microscope. In my talk I would like to share with you my latest findings.
