Dr. Yamini Dalal's research focuses on centromeres to elucidate the relationship between histone variants, chromatin fiber structure, assembly/disassembly dynamics and biological function. Her lab's research collaborative projects include developing new atomic force microscopy applications to enable fluorescent single molecule recognition within native chromatin, analyzing the structure of human artificial chromosomes, and mapping chromatin domains at fragile regions in human chromosomes.
