Chromosome and Developmental Biology training in Oxford
How are chromosomes formed and how are they segregated through mitosis and meiosis? How do organisms faithfully replicate their genome through many millions of cell divisions? How do cells repair their DNA in the face of a continuously destructive environment? How are gene expression patterns established and then maintained as organisms develop from a single cell to a highly complex animal or in response to specific environmental conditions? What is the role of RNA processing, export and translational control in gene regulation? How is the spatial organisation of different cell types coordinated during embryonic development and organogenesis?
If like us you want to know the answer to these and other fundamental questions about chromosomes, gene regulation and development - you've come to the right place!
