The Rout lab studies nuclear pore complexes (NPCs), which provide the only known sites for nucleocytoplasmic exchange and are also involved in key steps of genetic regulation. Using a variety of techniques, we are determining the structure and mechanisms of the NPC, in order to understand how the NPC functions as a transporter and regulates nuclear processes. We have leveraged techniques developed during these investigations into general tools and reagents for interactomic investigations of cellular systems. Though our collaborative center, the National Center for Dynamic Interactome Research, we train and disseminate these techniques to the biomedical community.
