Alberto García Nieto

PhD Student


During my Master studies in Human Biology at the University of Copenhagen, I had the opportunity to work with Anja Groth, understanding the histone replication machinery.
In 2017, I started my PhD in the group of Benjamin Rowland. My project focusses on understanding how two independent processes, cohesion, and condensation, are coordinated in order to form the typical X-shape chromosome. My main interest lies in understanding how condensin is regulated and how this complex compacts chromatin. Besides, how cohesin is kept in this cohesive state and how it prevents unwanted segregation defects during mitosis are some of the questions I am trying to address.
