Abby Dernburg, Ph.D.
University of California, Berkeley/HHMI

Abby Dernburg is Howard Hughes Investigator and Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology at University of California, Berkeley.  Abby received a B.A. in biochemistry at the University of California, Berkeley and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco.  Her research focuses on the molecular mechanisms underlying chromosome organization and dynamics during meiosis.

Seminar Topic

 

Chromosome Choreography During Meiosis

Abby Dernburg's lab is investigating the mechanisms that ensure accurate chromosome segregation during meiosis using C. elegans as their primary model system. Meiotic chromosomes and nuclei undergo dramatic reorganization to enable homologous chromosome pairing, synapsis, and recombination. This seminar will highlight our recent findings about the mechanisms and regulatory circuitry that mediate and coordinate these dramatic chromosome dynamics.
