Research Interests

The aim of our research is to understand how eukaryotic cellular complexity –which encompasses plants, animals, fungi and a vast diversity of microbial forms called protists– arose and diversified. To do this, we use phylogenomic approaches combined with cell and molecular experiments. Our team currently work on three major themes.
