The Zegerman lab The Gurdon Institute, University of Cambridge

The entire genome must be faithfully copied exactly once before cell division. We are interested in how this copying process - termed DNA replication - is regulated.

Understanding this process is important because failure to duplicate the genome accurately, leads to the mutations that cause diseases such as cancer.

We work in the Gurdon Institute, which provides state of the art laboratory facilities

The Institute is part of Cambridge University, in the centre of the city.

We study DNA replication control in a variety of eukaryotic systems.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Xenopus laevis

Caenorhabitis elegans

In coordination with the Gurdon Institute public engagement team, we talk to primary and secondary school children about our research
