Dynamic kinetochore

18 – 21 May 2015 | Copenhagen, Denmark

 

About the workshop

The kinetochore is a highly specialized structure that forms at centromeric chromatin during mitosis and meiosis to act as the chromosomal attachment site for the dynamic spindle microtubules that drive chromosome segregation. The hundred or more kinetochore proteins have a wide range of functions including localization to centromeric chromatin to specify the position of the kinetochore, binding to spindle microtubules, mediating chromosome movement, and sensing and correcting errors during chromosome segregation. The field is moving at a rapid pace and the objective is to bring together both senior and junior researchers in the field to present their latest work.

 

Topics include:

  • Epigenetic centromere specification and dynamics
  • Regulation of kinetochore function
  • Kinetochore microtubule interactions
  • Spindle assembly checkpoint signaling
  • Error correction machinery
