Bell Lab - Chromosome Biology

Our lab investigates the machineries that duplicate, express, organize and segregate the genome. To ensure viability, all cells must perform these processes in a timely and accurate manner. We exploit a multi- disciplinary range of cell and molecular biological, biochemical, genetic and structural approaches to determine the mechanistic and regulatory parameters that govern these essential cellular processes. Our work is driven by the evolutionary conservation of these fundamental machineries, allowing us to exploit a simple and robust model organism.
