Swigon's Research



Dr. Swigon works in molecular biology, with a focus on quantification of the relation between the sequence, mechanical properties, and biological function of intracellular components. He has developed micromechanical models of DNA and protein elasticity that combine atomic-scale and continuum mechanics approaches with recent advances in computational chemistry and employ information obtained by x-ray crystallography, single-molecule manipulation, and other experimental techniques.
