The labs of Stephen Bell and Rachel Y. Samson have published a new manuscript in the journal Cell. The article, entitled "Physical and Functional Compartmentalization of Archaeal Chromosomes”, reveals hitherto unrecognized similarities between the organization of archaeal chromosomes and those of humans. The paper also describes the identification of a novel chromosome-organizing protein termed “Coalescin (ClsN)".
We strive to create a welcoming and collegial environment for our students. We welcome the 2019 Cohort group!
"Susanne excelled in her first teaching role. She earned gratitude for getting the MLS degree program off to an excellent start, and her contributions go far beyond the normal call of duty." - Dr. Jim Drummond
Michael VanNieuwenhze, a Standiford H. Cox Professor of Chemistry at IU Bloomington, is among the Indiana University researchers that collaborated on the study and invention of a new tool that highlights real-time tracking of structured activity from bacterial cell walls.
