Areas of interest

  • Large-scale chromosomal rearrangements are a major source of genetic variation
  • bring about speciation
  • and are hallmarks of human disease. However
  • the mechanisms underlying their occurrence and subsequent fixation are not entirely understood. Using a comparative genomics approach
  • I investigate how specific genomic and epigenetic features lead to chromosomal rearrangements and the outcome of these events on species evolution and pathology. To this end
  • I have been using the gibbon genome as a model as these small apes have accumulated an unusually high number of evolutionary chromosomal rearrangements.
