1. Farrell, Megan K. Using Knot Theory to Model and Analyze DNA Replication and Recombination.

Degree: MS, Mathematics, 2018, Texas State University – San Marcos

Due to DNA supercoiling inside the nucleus of a cell, DNA can be modeled as a mathematical knot. We will analyze and examine the knots and links that arise after single or multiple rounds of DNA recombi- nation using the tangle model. We will also examine how the topology of a DNA strand is modified during DNA replication and which enzymes directly alter the topology of the strand. The goal is to better understand the mechanism of site-specific recombination and knotted DNA replication through mathematical models. Advisors/Committee Members: Snyder, David (advisor), Curtin, Eugene (committee member), Dochtermann, Anton (committee member).

Subjects/Keywords: Knot Theory; Topology; DNA; Math modeling; Tangle model; Tangles; Knot theory; DNA replication
