At the interface between Computer Science and Developmental Biology
Understanding developmental reproducibility at the single cell scale
Embryos develop following a predefined set of rules, in a reproducible manner, to allow the organization of a functioning organism.
In our group, we are interested in quantitatively characterising and understanding the origin of this developmental reproducibility during embryogenesis, across spatial and temporal scales.
We are pursuing two main research axes:
Building average representatives of a population of developing embryos
Characterising developmental variability across spatio-temporal scales
Currently, we mainly work on Drosophila embryos but we are always happy to explore new model organisms.
