Gene Center, University of Munich
Our lab studies the regulation of gene expression in Drosophila at a systems level, using a combination of molecular genetic, biochemical and computational approaches. Our current research is focused on understanding the transcriptional and posttranscriptional mechanisms responsible for generating highly defined spatio-temporal patterns of gene expression, with particular emphasis on complex developmental paradigms, where multiple extrinsic and intrinsic signals are integrated to produce a finely tuned output.
The Gene Center of the LMU Munich is an interdisciplinary institute whose 15 research groups study gene regulation at every level, from molecular mechanism to biological system. The Center provides a dynamic, highly interactive, and internationally diverse scientific environment, located within a vibrant biomedical research campus in Munich-Großhadern.
