The role of CENH3 in centromere function

Following a close collaboration with the Chan lab and the demise of Simon Chan in the Summer of 2012, we have assimilated Chan lab researchers working on different aspects of centromeric function and its epigenetic determination. We are investigating the structural features, evolutionary constraints, and mechanisms that determine the interaction of centromeric histone H3 (CENH3) with the centromere and its instability in outcrosses resulting in parent-specific genome elimination. In collaboration with the Korf lab, we are investigating the mechanisms of extreme chromosome fragmentation and reassembly that are associated to chromosome elimination.
