Creation of an international associated laboratory with China on structures and interactions of nucleic acids

26 June 2015

On May 29, 2015 in Beijing, the CNRS, the École normale supérieure de Cachan (ENS Cachan) and the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences formalised the creation of an international associated laboratory (LIA) : “G-quadruplex-HELIHelicase-mediated G-quadruplex DNA unwinding and genome stability”.
The LIA will focus on structures and interactions of nucleic acids.

The agreement has been signed by the Director of the European Research and International Cooperation Office, Dr. Patrick Nédellec, on behalf of the CNRS and the ENS Cachan and by M. Yupeng WANG, Director of the Institute of Physics - Chinese Academy of Sciences (IOP-CAS).

The activities of the new LIA will bring together two teams:

- Ming LI (IOP - CAS) from the National Laboratory for Condensed Matter Physics and the Key Laboratory for Soft Matter Physics.

- Xu-Guang XI (CNRS) from the Laboratoire de biologie et pharmacologie appliquée (CNRS - ENS Cachan).

This research program combines a wide variety of expertises (molecular biology, biochemistry, modeling and structural analysis, confocal and multiphoton microscopy)
