BBSRC DTP – 4-Year PhD Studentship – Cytokinetic variation: investigating the interaction between cell identity and cytokinesis

Posted by on April 30th, 2020

Project Description Cell division is fundamental to life and errors can result in abnormal chromosomal numbers, developmental defects, and cancers. Similarities in the structural and molecular organization of the division apparatus gives the textbook picture, that mechanisms underlying division, including formation and constriction of an actomyosin contractile ring, do not vary between cell and organism[…]
