University of Copenhagen

  • At UCPH, the Hickson/Liu lab members develop and provide all the necessary biological materials and relevant protocols needed for the consortium activity, including stable cell lines, isolated chromosomes, purified proteins, etc.
  • In addition, they collaborate with the VU team to use advanced optical tweezer technology and state-of-art 3D imaging systems to address biological questions, which also gives feedback to the physicists/engineers on the further improvement of the user platform. UCPH aims to gain mechanistic insight into the dynamic processing of chromosomes in mitosis and how these events are regulated by various proteins.
