2020.08 PNAS published a commentary by Dr. Dong Wang at UCSD to introduce our recent work.
2020.08 The Mao lab is accepting graduate students. Contact Dr. Mao (PMao@salud.unm.edu) for rotation opportunities.
2020.07 Our manuscript is accepted by PNAS! In this study, we investigated how cells rescue DNA damage-arrested RNA polymerase through transcription-coupled repair. Dr. Mingrui Duan in the Mao lab is the lead author of this study. Link:
2020.06 The Mao lab has received an R21 grant from NIH to study DNA repair of alkylation DNA damage.
2019.12 Our manuscript is accepted by Genome Research! We used genome-wide DNA repair and melanoma mutation data to analyze how nucleosomes, building blocks of chromatin, affect DNA repair and mutagenesis. Our whole-genome data revealed asymmetric repair and mutation distribution in nucleosomes! Link:
