Visualising Genome Stability
Susan Forsburg, University of Southern California, Los Angeles.
Mechanisms that maintain genome stability are the cell's first line of defence against cancer. Using the fission yeast, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, we are investigating how cells maintain the integrity of the replication fork, and the consequences of replication fork collapse. This study uses advanced imaging analysis including live cell studies and visualization of proteins on chromatin fibers to determine a visual architecture of the replication fork.
