We are biologists, broadly interested in the evolution of cell and molecular mechanisms.
We study the interplay between genome maintenance mechanisms and evolutionary forces in shaping organismal features.
We use a multidisciplinary methodology that entails molecular, cellular, evolutionary, and synthetic biology. When possible, we take advantage of quantitative approaches to discriminate amongst different classes of models.
