Research interests

I'm interesting by Evolution and in particular the mechanism at the molecular level.
During my master, I worked on Sex-ratio system in Drosophila simulans and try to determine genes that play a role in this trait. These genes still unknown and molecular system too.

PhD program: Arbuscular Mychorrizal Fungi (AMF).
Recent studies of our group show that nuclei don't have exactly the same genetic information (that is Heterokariosis). For this ancient putative asexual, some nuclear exchange could occur during anastomosis (hyphae fusion). My focus will be to determine, at the molecular level, the mechanisms that occur during this fusion. Which genes are involve and how they could play a role in partners chosen?
