We are trying to understand functional organization the cell nucleus.

1. Research Overview

The cell nucleus provides a physical framework for genetic activities of the chromosome, and yet dynamically changes its organization to achieve the functions. As cellular functions are achieved by orchestrated interactions of a number of proteins, it can be essential to observe their behaviors in living cells. By using microscopic imaging in conjunction with molecular genetic approaches, we try to understand functional organization of the nucleus within a spatial and temporal context of the cell.
