Regulation of chromosome condensation and segregation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Regulated and controlled chromosome condensation and segregation is essential for the transmission of genetic information from one generation to the next. A myriad of techniques has been utilized over the last few decades to identify proteins required for the organized compaction of the massive length of a cell's DNA. A full understanding of the components and processes involved relies on further work, exploiting biochemical, genetic, cytological, and proteomics approaches to complete the picture of how a cell packages and partitions its genome during the cell cycle.
