About Universität Heidelberg - ZMBH
The primary goal of the research in my group is to elucidate how epigenetic mechanisms are linked to centromere identity, chromosome segregation, and cell cycle progression. We use diverse cell biological, biochemical, molecular and genetic tools in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster and human cell culture for our studies. We have identified regulators that functionally or physically...More about Universität Heidelberg - ZMBH
