Marcus Wilhelmsson

Biträdande professor at Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Biotechnology, Physical Chemistry

The Wilhelmsson group designs fluorescent base analogues for DNA and RNA as well as develops and utilizes methods using these probes to study biomolecular systems. The research aims at developing molecules and methods that facilitate investigations of structure and dynamics of nucleic acids as well as their interactions with proteins and associated conformational changes. Using this novel toolbox the understanding regarding vital cellular processes like e.g. replication, transcription, gene regulation and RNA folding will increase.
