Bass Laboratory

The Bass Laboratory investigates the structure and function of chromosomes and telomeres during meiosis, when chromosomes are recombined, shuffled, and reduced to the haploid state (during production of sperm or eggs). Genetics, molecular biology, and microscopy are used to examine plant telomeres and their role in meiotic nuclear architecture and chromosome segregation. The data generated by these instruments are storage and analyzed using a variety of resources supported by HPC.
