My laboratory is studying cellular morphogenesis and flagellum assembly in the parasitic protist Trypanosoma brucei. My seminar will focus on tubulin cofactor C-like domain-containing proteins and their diverse roles in the assembly of microtubule and filamentous cytoskeletal structures essential to trypanosome viability. These studies have relevance beyond trypanosomes and will be placed in the wider context of cytoskeletal function in other eukaryotes.
