Editors for Chromosomes and Gene Expression

We aim to review research, performed using genetic, biochemical and structural approaches, that relates to all aspects of the central dogma of biology, specifically DNA replication, repair and recombination, transcription and RNA processing, and translation. We welcome studies in organisms from bacteria to humans that provide new insights into the mechanisms of these processes – including how they are regulated, for example during cell differentiation – and the defects in these processes that contribute to disease. Read the latest research in this subject area.

Senior editors

  1. Yamini Dalal

    National Cancer Institute, United States

    Yamini Dalal did her graduate work on chromatin structure with Arnie Stein and Minou Bina at Purdue University (PhD, 2003), and her postdoctoral research on centromeres with Steve Henikoff at the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center (2007). She is currently a Senior Investigator leading the Chromosome Structure and Epigenetics Mechanism Unit within the Laboratory of Receptor Biology and Gene Expression at the Center for Cancer Research of the NCI/NIH in Bethesda. Her lab focuses on histones, which package the entirety of the human genome into chromatin. Using a combination of chromatin biochemistry, computational modelling, atomic force microscopy (AFM), genetics, genomics and cell biology, Dr. Dalal and colleagues are investigating whether chromatin adopts alternate structural conformations in cancer cells, the functional consequences of large-scale chromosomal alterations upon the cancer epigenome, and identifying small molecules which can target these structures or processes.

  2. Silke Hauf

    Virginia Tech, United States

    Silke Hauf is Associate Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Virginia Tech. She received her MD from the University of Wuerzburg, Germany, and did postdoctoral training at the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna, Austria, and the University of Tokyo, Japan. She joined Virginia Tech in 2014 after being a group leader at the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory of the Max Planck Society in Tuebingen, Germany. Her work explores how cells execute the cell cycle reliably and ensure the proper inheritance of chromosomes. To obtain a systems understanding of these processes, her group often collaborates with theoretical biologists. At Virginia Tech, she also serves as Associate Director of the Center for the Mathematics of Biosystems.

  3. Adèle L Marston

    University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Adèle Marston is Professor of Cell Biology at the University of Edinburgh, a Wellcome Investigator and Director of the Wellcome Discovery Research Platform for Hidden Cell Biology. Adèle investigates the fundamental mechanisms by which cells reproduce themselves and transmit their genome to the next generation. She has a particular interest in meiosis, the cell division that generates eggs and sperm. Her laboratory takes a multi-disciplinary approach to identify the fundamental mechanisms of chromosome segregation in model organisms, including yeast, frogs and mice. To understand the relevance of these discoveries for human fertility, she also works with clinicians to investigate the origins of chromosome segregation errors in human oocytes.

  4. Lori Sussel

    University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, United States

    Lori Sussel is a Professor of Pediatrics and Cell & Developmental Biology at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center. She also serves as Director of the Research Division at Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes. She received her BA in Microbiology at the University of Texas, Austin and her PhD in Molecular Biology from Columbia University where she investigated transcriptional regulation in yeast. She pursued postdoctoral studies first with Dr. Barbara Meyer (UC Berkeley) and then Dr. John Rubenstein (UC San Francisco) where applied her interests in transcriptional regulation of cell fates to developmental processes. During her postdoctoral studies, she was funded by a Life Science Research Fellowship, a NIH F32 fellowship and the A.P Giannini Foundation. She began her independent career at the University of Colorado where she initiated her studies on the transcriptional regulation of pancreatic islet cell fates. In 2006, she moved to the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center at Columbia University where she continued to investigate pancreas development and islet biology, expanding her interests in transcriptional regulation to roles of long non-coding RNAs and RNA processing. In 2016, she returned to the University of Colorado to become the Director of Basic and Translational Research at the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes. Her research continues to focus on pancreas development and islet biology using mice and human stem cell platforms to understand the molecular underpinnings of the islet dysfunctions associated with diabetes. In this position, she holds the Sissel and Findlow Family Chair in Stem Cell Biology.

  5. K VijayRaghavan

    K VijayRaghavan

    National Centre for Biological Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, India

    Vijay’s research aims to understand motor- and olfactory- circuit assembly: from deciphering how each component is made, interacts, and stabilises into functioning in the animal to allow behaviour in the real world. Related to the development of network function is its maintenance in the mature animal; another aspect of the work in the laboratory addresses how mature neurons and muscles are maintained. The laboratory uses a genetic approach, mainly using the fruit fly but also collaborating with those using mouse and cell-culture. VijayRaghavan is Secretary to the Government of India in the Ministry of Science and Technology in the Department of Biotechnology. He temporarily holds additional charge of the Department of Biotechnology. VijayRaghavan’s research continues at the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Bangalore, India, where he is Distinguished Professor. He studied engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. His doctoral work was at TIFR, Mumbai and postdoctoral work at the California Institute of Technology. VijayRaghavan is a Fellow of the Royal Society, a Foreign Associate of the US National Academy of Sciences and a Foreign Associate of the European Molecular Biology Organization.
