Research Interests

The Lobachev lab is interested in studying the molecular mechanisms underlying  chromosome breakage and other chromosomal instabilities commonly associated with in cancer and other diseases. Recent work has established that breaks along chromosomes do not occur randomly but rather often coincide with the regions containing repetitive elements capable of adopting non-canonical DNA secondary structures.
