In order for cells to grow and for tissues to differentiate, the genetic material, or DNA, needs to be copied and transmitted during cell division. This process is highly controlled, and defects in these mechanisms have been linked to a variety of diseases. We are interested in understanding how the DNA in a cell is copied and maintained as well as the interplay between the organization of genome duplication and cellular function.
