The Nuclear and Chromatin Dynamics special interest group aims to be a platform for researchers interested in nuclear biology across eukaryotic kingdom. Core research themes include:
molecular trafficking into and out of the nucleus through the Nuclear Pore Complex
dynamic, composition and function of the Nuclear Envelope
linkages between nucleoskeleton and cytoskeleton and role in nuclear movement
organisation of chromatin domains in nuclear space
composition and function of nuclear bodies
positioning of the nucleus relative to other cellular components
The Nuclear and Chromatin Dynamics Group fosters research into structural nuclear components and their role in the regulation of nuclear dynamics and morphology, chromatin organization, gene expression, development and interaction with the environment in various eukaryotic systems. This group promotes state of the art technologies and multidisciplinary approaches including microscopy, image analysis, chromatin domain mapping, genomics, bioinformatics and phenotyping.
