Abstract:

A chromatin perspective of cell cycle and genome replication during Arabidopsis organogenesis

The cell cycle is defined by a series of complex events, finely coordinated through hormonal, developmental and environmental signals, which occur in a unidirectional manner and end up in producing two daughter cells. Accumulating evidence reveals that chromatin is not a static entity throughout the cell cycle. In fact, there are many changes. It is possible to correlate the occurrence of several of these chromatin-related events with specific processes necessary for cell cycle progression. Therefore, an emerging view is that chromatin dynamics must be considered as an intrinsic part of cell cycle regulation. In this talk, I will briefly review the results supporting a chromatin perspective of the cell cycle. Also I will focus on events related to genome replication and cell division control in the meristems linked to chromatin dynamics.
