I work with Molecular Dynamic (MD) Simulations and QM-Calculations to investigate different accepts of the DNA repair proteins photolyase and DNA ligase.

With molecular dynamic simulations I have investigated the binding between DNA-photolyase and cryptochrome to DNA with a (6-4) photolesion. Currently the main focus of my research is to get a better understanding of the nick sealing by DNA ligase using both MD Simulation and QM-Calculation.
