“Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution” (Theodosius Dobhzansky)

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. We aim at the study of genome organization and evolutionary breakpoints in a wide range of mammalian species and to open new research avenues in the study of genome evolution.
