Marcus B. Noyes

(2009-2015) Currently: Faculty at NYU, the Institute for Systems Genetics (ISG)


Dr. Noyes focuses on the use of traditional methods as well as the development of new techniques to provide a better understanding of how proteins and DNA interact with one another. By doing so he hopes to provide a greater understanding of the complex networks that control what genes are expressed in any given cell type under any given condition. In addition, he uses these same tools to engineer novel DNA-binding proteins to specify desired sequences of DNA. These artificial factors can be used to target activators or repressors to site-specifically control gene expression as well as make targeted genomic modifications for therapeutic and experimental applications.
