      Collapse Overview
      Our lab is focused on the molecular mechanisms of chromosome segregation in meiosis. We use biochemistry, X-ray crystallography, and genetics in S. cerevisiae to probe the structure, function, and interactions between proteins involved in meiotic chromosome pairing, crossover initiation and maturation, and chromosome segregation.
