Comparative genomics and recoding lab
- We are a research lab located at the Department of Genetics, Microbiology and Statistics of the University of Barcelona (UB), and affiliated to the Institute of Biomedicine of the University of Barcelona (IBUB). The lab opened in May 2021.
- The core expertise of the lab is comparative genomics. We combine evolutionary bioinformatics and molecular biology to understand the mechanism, function and evolution of genes.
- We study the processes of gene expression and protein synthesis, and we are particularly interested in the phenomenon of recoding (programmed exceptions to the genetic code). For more information, see Research.
