photoA cell’s ability to accurately segregate genetic material during division is essential for the survival of an organism, and errors can resultin developmental defects and diseases. The Kapoor lab takes a multidisciplinary approach to investigating the molecular and physical mechanisms that explain how exactly one copy of the genome is delivered to each daughter cell during cell division.
