Frontiers in Quantitative Biology Seminar


The Dumont Lab is interested in how cells coordinate mechanical and chemical activities to accurately segregate chromosomes during cell division. How do cells generate, detect and respond to mechanical force to equally distribute their genetic material when they divide? Errors in chromosome segregation can lead to birth defects and disease. While we know nearly all the molecules essential for chromosome segregation, we do not understand the underlying mechanical principles or how key cellular machines are designed to achieve such robustness and accuracy. New approaches are needed and the Dumont Lab is using new biophysical and molecular tools to address these questions.
