Student Spotlight: Katrina Kincel
Katrina Kincel, student of Dr. Lisa Antoniacci, presents her research of "Sister Chromatid Cohesion in Yeast" with a focus on the histone variant Htz1.#youtube("$content.youtube")
Kristina tested the effects of Htz1 by using both wild and mutant strands of yeast. GFP (green fluorescent protein) was utilized to prove that there was a premature separation of the chromosomes in the mutant cell strands, concluding that the histone variant Htz1is defective in sister chromatid cohesion.
