Our goal is to understand the two-way relationship between the spatio-temporal organization and dynamics of the genome and the coordinated regulation of its expression – through an approach at the interface between physics, computer science and biology.
Congratulations to Leïla Périé and Antoine Coulon, winners of the CNRS Bronze Medal 2023Two scientists from the Research Center have just been honored by the CNRS. Each year the organization rewards the women and men who have made the greatest contributions to its reputation and progress in research. The 2023 edition once again recognizes the excellence of the researchers working at Institut Curie’s Research Center.04/04/2023
Manipulating chromosomes in living cells reveals that they are fluidFor the first time, scientists from CNRS, Institut Curie and Sorbonne Université have been able to act physically on chromosomes in living cells. By subjecting the chromosomes to different forces using magnets, they discovered that chromosomes are in fact very fluid – almost liquid – outside cell division phases.
