Coordinating genome segregation with cell division
|Dates:||13 October 2015|
|Times:||13:00 - 14:00|
|What is it:||Seminar|
|Organiser:||Faculty of Life Sciences|
|Who is it for:||University staff, Current University students|
|Speaker:||Professor Buzz Baum|
Eukaryotic cells actively remodel their actin and microtubule cytoskeletons as they enter and exit mitosis.
In this talk I will discuss the ways in which these two filament systems work together to ensure that genetic material, mitochondria and cell mass are fairly and accurately segregated at division. How did this evolve? To look at this, I will also briefly discuss what we know about the evolution of eukaryotes and eukaryotic cell division.
