Tom Bishop is a computational molecular biologist. His primary research interests are the structure and dynamics of DNA and chromatin and how they relate to genetic function and disfunction (e.g. transcription, regulation, replication and repair). He studies molecular events in the hormone response mechanism as a model system for this research.
Dr. Bishop's research interests are in the area of theoretical and computational molecular biology, with a particular emphasis in molecular modeling and molecular dynamics simulations of proteins and DNA. The current focus is developing a multiscale model of DNA, nucleosomes and chromatin.
