Chromatin Dynamics in Mitotic Chromosome Assembly - P. Bernard

The ability of the genome to adopt a dynamic 3D organisation underlies most DNA transactions. The profound reorganisation of long chromatin fibres into rod-shaped chromosomes in mitosis is an iconic example of this structural dynamics. The main goal of our research is to understand the cellular mechanisms that take place at the chromatin level for the assembly of segregation-competent mitotic chromosomes. We use the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe and human cultured cells as model systems.

Condensin in the context of chromatin - P. Bernard

Determining (1) the mechanisms that make chromatin suitable for condensin action in vivo,(2) the role of condensin at telomeres, and (3) the link between condensin and S phase.

RNA polymerases and R-loops in chromosome assembly and integrity-V. Vanoosthuyse

Understanding (1) how RNA polymerases influence the distribution of condensin during mitotic chromosome condensation, and (2) how the transcription by-product R-loop can interfere with chromosome integrity
