Jefferson Scholars Foundation Dissertation Year Fellow,

Charles McAnany joined the institute in 2019 to apply his knowledge of biomolecular structure to genomics. He has developed a method of visualizing the language of DNA, which uses machine learning to determine the role of each base in the genome to the nucleosome code. He also applies physics-based simulations to understand, in atomic detail, the interactions between proteins and nucleic acids. In his free time, he is an avid photographer, with a full darkroom in his basement capable of processing and printing negatives from his 4x5 camera. He is actively involved in the Alpha Chi Sigma Professional Chemistry Fraternity; he is the secretary for the Kansas City chapter, and serves as the official photographer for the fraternity at its national meetings.
