I'm happy to share that the first major publication from the Corbett lab has been published in Developmental Cell! This paper describes the structures, interactions, and assembly of a family of proteins that bind chromosomes in meiosis, and control lots of different meiotic processes including formation of meiotic DNA breaks and their targeted repair into inter-homolog crossovers. This paper was a joint effort between our own Scott Rosenberg and Yumi Kim in the lab of Abby Dernburg at UC Berkeley and LBNL. It was truly a collaborative effort, combining the strengths of both of our labs. Thanks Yumi and Abby!
