Katsu MurakamiDepartment of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA, USA F1000 Faculty Member (since 23 April 2008)
Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Doctorate, genetics: Graduate University of Advanced Studies
Gene expression is fundamental to all organisms and studying how the genetic code is expressed in molecular terms is critical to cell development and understanding diseases. Our major contribution to biomedical research involves applying structural biology (X-ray crystallography) towards understanding how the genetic information is transcribed into RNA. My laboratory currently studies transcription in bacteriophage N4 and Archaea as model systems for single-subunit and cellular RNAPs, respectively.
