Research project: Regulation of cell fate by transcription factors.

Our research focuses on the regulation of cell fate by transcription factors, in particular homeobox genes, and how the control cell fate during development.
The laboratory uses an integrated approach that combines cell biology, genetic and molecular studies in C. elegans with bioinformatics and mathematical modeling. To study the transcription factor function, a 4D microscopy system has been developed ( In addition, a Copas Biosort worm sorter with fluorescent sorting capability is available to allow high-throughput genetic mutant screens (
