2020.08 PNAS published a commentary by Dr. Dong Wang at UCSD to introduce our recent work. https://www.pnas.org/content/117/35/20991.short

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: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32690696/

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: https://genome.cshlp.org/content/early/2019/12/23/gr.253146.119.abstract
