Scientific summary

My research focuses on the mechanisms controlling the initiation of DNA replication in mammals. By combining genome-scale and tailored analysis, my aim is to identify factors and pathways involved in regulating DNA replication and their functional relevance for the maintenance of genome integrity and cell identity.
