The greater New York metropolitan area has become a leading center for research on chromosome biology and function, as well as for research at the interface between chromosome integrity and cell cycle regulation. The Genome Integrity Discussion Group meets four to five times each year and provides an opportunity for researchers active in this area to exchange ideas and form research collaborations.
