Developmental Genetics and Gene Control

The research group focuses on the eukaryotic gene expression and the genetics of vertebrate embryonic development; developmental studies are focused largely on the mechanisms that control stem cell fate; these include studies of the nervous system, germ cells and bone marrow derived stem cells; the group's work on the control of gene expression addresses the machinery used by cells to achieve appropriate levels of functional transcripts; these studies include control of transcription and the mechanisms of RNA maturation.
