Seminar Title: Maintaining genome stability: nuclear and mitochondrial

Host: Hilda Pickett

Abstract: Chromosomes are the fundamental structural units of our genome. Understanding their basic biology and how their mismanagement leads to disease is the main focus of the Sfeir lab. The scientific questions we address cover three major areas of research:
1 - mtDNA replication and repair
2- Pathways of DNA double-strand break repair
3- Telomere regulation in mammalian cell
