We study mitotic chromosome structure and segregation using proteomic, genetic and cell biology approaches. Our recent studies employing human synthetic artificial chromosomes highlight the importance of transcription and histone modifications for kinetochore assembly. We also study the 'chromosomal passenger complex' (INCENP, Aurora B kinase, Survivin and Borealin) a major regulator of mitosis and cytokinesis.
