  • Unexpected finding solves 40-year old cytoskeleton mystery

    Scientists have been searching for it for decades: the enzyme that cuts the amino acid tyrosine off an important part of the cell’s skeleton. Researchers of the Netherlands Cancer Institute have now identified this mystery player, which may be of vital importance to the understanding of cell functio more

  • Genome architecture caught in motion

    Researchers at The Wistar Institute have uncovered new aspects of the three-dimensional organization of the genome, specifically how the genetic material is compacted and de-compacted in a timely fashion during the different phases of the cell cycle. "We are just starting to appreciate that the way more

  • How does a cell maintain its identity during replication?

    Prior to cell division, chromosomes are seemingly a jumbled mess. During cell division, parent cell chromosomes and their duplicates sort themselves out by condensing, becoming thousands of times more compact than at any other time. Researchers have long assumed that genes become "silent" during cel more

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Principles of Chromosome Structure and Function

Chromosomes are arguabely one of the most important structures inside cells. Several meters of DNA are compacted into micrometer-sized assemblies in every human cell. Recent advances in our understanding of how this is achieved, and of its implications on nuclear functions, have been breathtaking. I
