Understanding cell organization and inheritance one division at a time
The Riggs lab has sought to understand how the cell is organized throughout the cell cycle and focused on the partitioning and inheritance or organelles and other cytoplasmic material. Much of the focus has been on our understanding of genetic organization and partitioning during cell division but our knowledge of organelle dynamics during mitosis and the inheritance to the daughter cells is limited. The focus of the Riggs lab is to increase our understanding of organelle inheritance and any regulatory pathways and the role of organelles in directing the generation of cell diversity.
