We study how chromosomes segregate in plants. We wonder how the centromeres organize the overlying kinetochores and how the kinetochores ensure accurate chromosome segregation. We want to know what plant centromeres are made of, how they are inherited, what proteins interact with them, and how they evolve. What are centromeres? For over fifteen years our lab has been working through the answers to these questions.
