Damien Coudreuse Group - SyntheCell

Control of cell proliferation is one of the most fundamental and intricate processes in living organisms. Our team takes a synthetic approach, building artificial systems in fission yeast to gain further insights into the mechanisms of cell division and to understand how simple biological regulations evolve in challenging conditions.
