Welcome to Dynamic DNA. The site is still under construction, but check back soon as I anticipate a hard release in the near future.  The DNA in eukaryotic cells is packed into the cell’s nucleus.  But the DNA isn’t just “thrown in there”, it’s organized in a way that can impact how it is read (transcribed) and repaired. In the context of this website, Dynamic DNA refers to how cells organize their genomes (a genome is the entirety of the DNA in a cell) and where when and how that organization changes.  Dynamic DNA also refers to how an organisms genes can change, both naturally and through the application of biotechnology. This website highlights my research into genome organization and my teaching pursuits which also include courses for non-scientists about how molecular biology intersects our lives, from the doctor’s office to the supermarket.  The blog portion is directed at non-biologists and my goal with it is to help explain the science behind timely topics of general interest, for example genetically engineered crops and gene therapy, along with a straight forward explanation of some basic biology needed to fully understand these concepts (e.g. what is a gene).  I can be contacted at <dan.strongin (at) dynamicdna (dot) org> and I also welcome suggestions for blog topics.
