Strategic Research

Comparative Genomics

What make us human? This is a fundamental question in many disciplines. Our team analyzes a wide range of genome variants to determine processes, variants and molecular features that are intrinsic to our species. To do so, we study full genome, epigenomes and transcriptomic sequences of humans and great apes for a better understanding of human specific features. 

On the other hand, we are also exploring canid genome diversity to study the phenotypic impact of copy number variation into the wide phenotypic variation of modern dog breeds.
