Search for specific sites on long bacterial chromosomes during horizontal gene transfer processes in live individual cells, as a mechanism of generation of genetic diversity.
We welcome candidates from all scientific disciplines.
Using methods of Statistical Mechanics and stochastic processes, as well as Gillespie simulations, the project aims at understanding two-dimensional trichome patterns in Arabidopsis leaves
Study at the single molecule level the search processes of imported pieces of DNA until their integration in a bacterial chromosome, using fluorescence microscopy
The project includes both experiments following circadian clocks at the single cell level as well as theoretical modeling.
Study active matter flocking in bacterial suspensions experimentally. The study involves in addition to real time experiments, image analysis using computer vision techniques and understanding the importance of metabolic interactions.
