FUNCTIONAL CHARACTERIZATION OF SSB2: A NOVEL SINGLE-STRANDED DNA BINDING PROTEIN

Grant number: DP1096661 | Funding period: 2010 - 2012

Completed

Abstract

Defects in the DNA damage response pathway underpin many human genetic disorders and diseases. A detailed understanding of this pathway has enormous implications for future medicine. The proposed research will lead to functional characterization of a new protein, identify new concepts in DNA damage repair pathways, train young researchers and place Australia among the leaders in this internationally significant and highly competitive area of research. It will underpin the national research priority of Promoting and Maintaining Good Health and help Australia capitalise on a plethora of opportunities for future economic and health benefits.
