Welcome to the home page of Wenyi Feng's laboratory.  Our lab is housed in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at SUNY Upstate Medical University.

We are interested in chromosome DNA replication and genomic instability.  We apply genomic approaches to address the mechanisms of single-stranded DNA and double-strand break formation during replication stress, using the model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae.  We are also applying the methodologies that we developed in yeast to identify chromosome landmarks such as origins of replication and fragile sites in the human genome.
