      Collapse Overview
      Our laboratory is studying the genetic and biochemical mechanisms of genetic recombination, DNA repair and suppression of spontaneous mutations primarily using Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model system. Work in S. cerevisiae falls in two interrelated areas - 1) the analysis of the proteins and genes that function in DNA mismatch repair; and 2) elucidation of the pathways that prevent translocations and other types of gross chromosomal rearrangements, and the analysis of the proteins that function in these pathways. The Kolodner lab also has research interests in the area of investigating the genetics of cancer susceptibility and development that follows on previous studies showing that a common cancer susceptibility syndrome, Lynch Syndrome (hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer), is due to inherited defects in DNA mismatch repair genes. This work is focused on understanding whether genes that prevent genome instability act as tumor suppressor genes in humans and whether defects in these genes can be therapeutically targeted.
