Mission: Our Group works chiefly in the fields of comparative genomics, evolution and chromosomal instability and, in particular, we are interested in the mechanisms that are driving karyotype evolution and genomic architecture in mammals.

Our research activity is aimed at addressing a whole range of different evolutionary questions through a multidisciplinary approach, combining computational and experimental methods such as available genome databases and a battery of molecular, cytogenetic and cell biology, and by studying the genomes of different mammalian species.

Principal Research Programs: Primates cytogenetics: Cytogenetic characterization; Chromosomal evolution; Evolutionary breakpoints; Chromosomal homologies; Bioinformatics, Meiosis

Training Opportunities: Research training for graduate, postgraduate students

Number of Staff: 5
