Our focus is on eukaryotic DNA replication and its control, with emphasis on the identification of the protein components involved in these processes. In general, eukaryotic replication proceeds along pathways that have been conserved from yeast to mammalian cells, and strikingly, as we gain more detailed information, appears to extend to prokaryotes.
