P.I.
Ann Beyer, PhD
Ann Beyer, PhD --  alb4h@virginia.edu

After receiving her PhD from Vanderbilt University, Ann Beyer did postdoctoral training with Professor Oscar Miller Jr., who developed the Miller chromatin spreading method for visualization of genes in action.  The Beyer lab exploits this method to study the most active genes in a growing cell – the genes encoding ribosomal RNA.


Senior Scientist
Sarah French, PhD
Sarah French -- slf3a@virginia.edu

Sarah’s projects include investigation of the role of DNA topology in transcription, and development of a model for RNA polymerase I movement on rRNA genes based on extensive analysis of polymerase position on these genes.
