Dr Chris McInerny
- Reader (Molecular Biosciences)
My research interests focus on the regulation the cell division cycle, using the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe as a model organism. We study the role of gene expression in regulating progression through the cell cycle, and are particularly interested in the processes that mediate cytokinesis and cell separation.
The role of cell and life cycle specific transcription in fission yeast.
