Site-specific recombinases mediate precise, conservative recombination between two short DNA recognition target sites. Three types of site-specific DNA rearrangement can result from site-specific mediated recombination: integration, excision, and inversion. During the last decade such systems have become widely used as a powerful tool in cell line and organism genome engineering.
The main research interest of our lab is to understand the mechanism of the site specific recombination system of bacteriophage HK022 and its application for gene manipulations in human cells and in zebra fish cells.
