Cell division is a fundamental aspect of life. Numerous biochemical and structural changes occur throughout the cell as the microtubule-based spindle assembles and attaches to the condensed chromosomes, segregates them, and signals to the cell cortex to induce cleavage into two daughter cells through an actin-based contraction. The complexity of these changes necessitates a wide range of multidisciplinary research. The goal of our conference is to disseminate recent findings emerging from cell biology, biochemistry, biophysics, functional-genomics, systems and computational approaches; and integrate them into a mechanistic understanding of the global principles of cell division.
