In very early-stage mammalian embryos, the cell cycle is controlled by maternal factors and mitotic process is regulated in a specialized manner.

In this project, I address the questions: gWhat are the characteristic features of maternally controlled cell divisions?h and gWhat are the fundamental mechanisms for chromosome segregation that meiotic-, mitotic-, and maternal-divisions all shared in common?h

The importance of maternally controlled cell divisions in mammalian development will also be addressed.
