Chromatin pathways to genome integrity


The overall objective of Manolis Papamichos-Chronakis group is to decipher the interplay between the multiple machineries that keep our genome intact and the chromatin structure of DNA. Using a combination of genetics, cell imaging and high-throughput technologies in budding yeast and human cells they are exploring the role of chromatin remodelling and histone variants in eukaryotic DNA replication, DNA repair and cell division.
