The CIG has brought together interactive research groups that are at the forefront of their respective fields. Together, they perform research exploring three major areas:
The regulation of gene expression by the transcription machinery, chromatin structure, transcription factors, and signal transduction cascades.
The genomics of complex functions such as embryonic development, physiological functions in the context of the organism, and behavior.
To perform cutting edge research, the CIG is exceptionnally well equipped with state-of-the-art core facilities, which acquire and maintain the latest instruments and dispense training in the latest technologies.
