The Zebrafish Developmental Genomics Laboratory is an independent research group in the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw, Poland.
Our research is dedicated to the study of developmental processes by applying genomics methods in combination with experimental embryology, genetics, and biochemistry. The aim of our research is to understand the dynamics of gene regulation during embryonic development in vivo.
The research in our lab focuses on two levels of gene regulation: transcriptional and translational. At the level of transcriptional regulation, we seek to understand the mechanism by which transcription factors (TFs) and epigenetic landscape interact to regulate heart development. At the level of translation, we investigate the mechanism of translational control of maternal mRNAs though cytoplasmic polyadenylation during early embryonic development.
