  Karolin Luger, Ph.D.
In 1997, Luger and her colleagues used x-ray crystallography to reveal the structure of a core chromatin particle with unprecedented detail.
Karolin Luger is investigating the structural biology of the nucleosome, the fundamental packaging unit of DNA in all eukaryotic cells that regulates gene transcription.
