Physiology and biotechnology of avian stem cells

The team is focusing its research on two major questions related to the physiology and the biotechnology use of avian embryonic stem cells:

  •  could a naive state be identified and characterized in a non-mammalian species. Through the development of new reporters and characterization of epigenetic profiles, this approach will allow us to identify the cell and molecular features of the naïve chiken ES cells and explore whether such naïve cells can differentiate into functional germ cells.
  •  could the controlled differentiation culture conditions and reprogramming process help to generate new avian cell lines with defined phenotypes for biotechnological uses. Not yet used in non mammalian species, the somatic reprogramming approach will help us to produce innovative cellular substrates and new cell types in avian species.
