About Daniel Herschlag's Work

The overarching goal of my lab is to understand the fundamental behavior of RNA and proteins and, in turn, how these behaviors determine and impact biology more broadly. We are particularly interested in questions of how enzymes work, how RNA folds, how proteins recognize RNA, and the roles of RNA/protein interactions in regulation and control, and the evolution of molecules and molecular interactions. Our group takes an interdisciplinary approach, spanning and integrating physics, chemistry and biology, and employing a wide range of techniques.
