Genome Dynamics Program
We are currently starting a research line focussed on the dynamics of the human genome. We pretend to define genome rearragements that ocurr in somatic cell due to recombination between reiterated DNA sequences.
This research line is focused in the frequent genome rearrangement than occur in bacteral due to homologus recombination between reiterate sequences.
We are using a novel strategy - natural genomic design - to obtein bacterial strains with alternative genomic structures. Such strains might be useful to address scientific questions or to solve some applied problems.
