New Nature Publication online

We are happy to announce, that David Cisneros – a shared Postdoc of our group and the lab of Jan-Michael Peters at the IMP Vienna – has contributed to a recent Nature publication which sheds light on the organization of chromosome structure and segregation:

Wapl is an essential regulator of chromatin structure and chromosome segregation

These findings reveal that the stability of cohesin–DNA interactions is an important determinant of chromatin structure, and indicate that cohesin has an architectural role in interphase chromosome territories.
