Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology

Research topics

Our research aims to uncover fundamental mechanisms responsible for the stability, transmission and expression of genetic information in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes.

We also carry out studies of the processes underlying microbial physiology and pathogenesis.
