Abnormal numbers of chromosomes—known as aneuploidy—are a common cause of genetic disorders and birth defects.
Problems in chromosome cohesion can have far-reaching effects.
A cell division discovery could have big implications for infertility and birth defects.
New research in basic cell division leads to understanding of tumor origins.
Signals controlling chromosome separation may hold key to stopping onset
Kids aren’t just small adults. Their needs are unique, and diseases can affect them differently. OMRF cell biologists are at work looking for the triggers that lead to problems in cell division that can cause birth defects like Down syndrome and even cancers. Immunologists are looking at a newly discovered cell that may trigger the […]
