MOLECULAR MECHANISMS CONTROLLING GERMLINE STEM CELL BIOLOGY

Research Interests

Our lab focuses on the development of the germline, the ‘immortal’ cell lineage that provides the continuity of life. We are interested in understanding the genetic and molecular mechanisms controlling germline stem cell behaviour and sheltering the germline genome. Using Drosophila as a model, our work combines developmental, genetics, evolution analysis, and high-throughput approaches to uncover general principles governing germline biology in vivo.
