Scientific summary

I am interested in the understanding of how a single cell; the fertilized egg, becomes, after a more or less long period, a multicellular, organized, differentiated organism.

I am an expert in mouse model engineering, molecular genetics and development. I have worked on meiosis, patterning of the embryo, heart development and myogenesis. My current topic of interest is the exploration of the diversity of the basal transcription machinery and its potential implication during development and differentiation.
