Research Interests

Dynamics of DNA replication in higher eukaryotes

Research Area

In higher eukaryotes DNA replication starts at thousands of sites in the genome called replication origins. Our group is interested how the activation of these multiple origins is coordinated in space and time and how this is linked to genomic instability which leads to cancer.
