Mentor: Roger Kornberg, Structural Biology

Mark's research is focused on simulating cryo-EM (electron microscope) for protein 3d reconstruction using gold particles to align the images for better signals. The project includes working with programs such as EMAN2 and Relion to understand the status quo of the research and to improve the programs to fit the specific needs of the lab.
