This team studies anura amphibian genome Xenopus tropicalis through 3 thematics: (i) genome structure, by characterizing the different DNA transposons families in xenopes and by using them in genome engineering experiment; (ii) genome expression, by characterizing transcriptomes during ontogenesis (premature development and metamorphosys); (iii) genomes evolution, by analyzing the evolution of transposons and regulator genes from ontogenesis.
Our group is interested in systems biology and genomics. Our project within the institute is to explore the fundamentals of genome structure and expression. Moreover we provide molecular genetics, transgenesis, transcriptomics and bioinformatic tools to study an easily amenable animal model.
We study the genome of an anuran amphibian (a frog) named Xenopus tropicalis through three topics:
