John V. Moran

Summary

John Moran is working to understand the biology of a class of "jumping genes" named LINE-1 elements. The goal of the laboratory is to determine how LINE-1 elements mobilize and how the resulting insertions contribute to human disease, genetic variation, and genome evolution.
