Title: Eukaryotic cell division and its origins

Professor Buzz Baum, MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology, University College London

In the lab we have long studied the changes in cell shape and organisation that accompany mitotic progression in a number of eukaryotic cell systems. These rely on remodelling of the actin cytoskeleton, the microtubule cytoskeleton, and on changes in cell-substrate adhesion. In this talk, we will consider how these wholesale changes in cellular architecture contribute to cell division in different systems in different environments. In addition, we will look at how eukaryotic cell division might have arisen, by exploring the commonalities between archaeal and eukaryotic cell division, using Asgard archaea as a bridge between kingdoms.

Host: Alexis Braun
