The Duboule Lab major aim is to study gene regulation during mammalian embryological development by using the recent tools of functional genomics. A special focus is given to the study of how Hox genes transcription is deployed during axial extension, in both space and time. These genes have a special interest in the study of our ontogeny (our development as individuals) and our phylogeny (our origin as a group of individuals). The detailed understanding of their regulations and functions will be an important step in understanding of own development and evolution.
