Transcription factories in a Hela cell [from Cook PR (1999) Science 284, 1790]

Nuclear Structure and Function Research Group

Welcome

Welcome to the Cook group (contacts).
Peter Cook has retired, but is still engaged in research as an 'Honorary Researcher' and 'Emeritus Professor' in two main areas:

   
A model for genome organization and gene regulation

1. "A theory of everything'' in the field of genome organization and gene regulation: 'Transcription-driven genome organization'.

This 5-min YouTube movie shows how we think RNA polymerases work, how genes are regulated, and how genomes are organized.

Fluid walls can confine different volumes

2. Microfluidics with fluid walls: Latterly, we have been developing simple ways of doing microfluidics – 'Freestyle Fluidics' for flowing applications, and 'GRIDs' (left) for static ones. We hope these will transform the way small volumes are handled.

iotaSciences Ltd – a company spun-out from The University of Oxford – is commercializing this technology.
