Unraveling the Mysteries of Molecular Machines

Seychelle M. Vos, PhD, has a passion for science that was ignited at a young age while exploring her parents’ garden and the natural world around her. Now she studies some of the biggest questions in genome biology: how DNA structure and chromatin influence protein transcription. The molecular machines that physically couple transcription and DNA structure by changing the position of nucleosomes, interfacing with chromatin, and compressing DNA into loops, are the focus of Vos’ research.
