Protein degradation, like transcription and translation, is  highly precise and efficient. My lab aims to understand how accurate control of protein degradation is achieved and how failures of control contribute to neurodegeneration and aging.  We use single-molecule techniques, cryo-EM and MD simulations to study how the proteasome decodes ubiquitin chain configurations.
