Today we spent the morning preparing a talk to give the department describing the basic theory and motivation behind our work. We described how our work applies to the protein-DNA interactions that occur naturally in the body many times per second. Our work also can be used to package DNA in useful ways and facilitate its uptake into cells for gene therapy. I also spent a good deal of time reading over the paper I will present tomorrow on osmotic pressure's effect on virus DNA ejection. The virus system does not exactly apply to our work, but a lot of the concepts, including osmotic pressure and DNA-DNA interactions are very similar.
