    S-phase-independent silencing establishment in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Davis Goodnight, Jasper Rine
    Cell-cycle progression is crucial for heterochromatin formation in budding yeast because S phase promotes the removal of active chromatin marks.

    The role of Rif1 in telomere length regulation is separable from its role in origin firing

    Calla B Shubin, Carol W Greider
    Telomere length is linked to DNA replication, and we found excessive telomeric origin firing caused by several distinct mutants did not lengthen telomeres, narrowing possible mechanisms.

    A non-mosaic transchromosomic mouse model of Down syndrome carrying the long arm of human chromosome 21

    Yasuhiro Kazuki et al.
    TcMAC21 is an appropriate “next gen” mouse model for DS research, and provides a proof of concept of using artificial chromosomes to generate non-mosaic humanized animal models of chromosome disorders.
