Summary of thesis Matrix attachment regions (MARs) are responsible for mediating the organisation of chromatin and modulating of gene expression. Recent evidence suggests that they may also play a role in DNA recombination. The goal of the thesis is to obtain more evidence on the role of MAR elements in homologous recombination and identify a molecular mechanism behind this function of MARs.
