Prashanth AK’s research program aims to elucidate general principles underlying complex behavior of biological systems. He focuses on how DNA structural properties (specifically, destabilization of the DNA duplex) determine fundamental biological mechanisms by examining the interaction of such properties with other biological features to mediate biological system-level behavior.
