Biology of telomeres: lessons from budding yeast

vectorborne parastites

Telomeres, the eukaryotic chromosomes ends, preserve genome stability and help duplicate the genome. They play important roles in aging and cancer. The author Martin Kupiec summarizes our knowledge on the telomeres of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a widely used model organism.
