Faculty Spotlight: Francesca Cole, Ph.D.

The Cole lab studies homologous recombination (HR) during mouse meiosis. HR is critical to proper DNA repair. Improper repair can lead to mutation, loss of genome integrity and tumorigenesis. Dr. Cole has developed a new assay (mouse tetrad analysis) to better understand the mechanisms underlying HR and how repair proteins cooperate to effect repair in vivo.
