Welcome to the Fuchs Lab. We are broadly interested in understanding relationships between protein structure and protein function. Currently we are investigating a number of novel mechanisms used by organisms to regulate protein function that include post-translational modification of amino acid sidechains and genetic variation in repetitive elements. Work in our lab is at the interface of Chemistry, Biology, Engineering and Music. Learn more.
