Chromatin integrity and function

The "Chromatin integrity and Function" group is a basic research team whose main scientific aim is understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying genome instability, paying a particular attention to the role of chromatin. Specifically, our research is focused in two major lines: role of chromatin assembly on genome regulation and stability, and study of the mechanisms of DNA damage tolerance. The group is formed by the principal investigator, a senior PhD, and a variable number of posdoc and PhD students.
