Physiology and biotechnology of avian stem cells - Teams

Research interest

My research focuses on how epigenetic mechanisms control the pluripotency and the differentiation of  avian embryonic stem cells. I aim to characterize the dynamics of DNA methylation and chromatin modifications in cultured cells and during the early development of the chick embryo. I also study the resetting of the epigenome in primordial germ cells as well as during cellular reprogramming. In parallel, I participate in the generation of a virtual stem cell model in order to better understand the regulation of transitions between different states of pluripotency.
