Welcome to the Großhans Lab at FMI. We use C. elegans and mammalian cells to study developmental clocks and timers as well as RNA silencing pathways. Read more here.
The lab is interested in understanding the molecular and physiological functions of mechanisms that regulate gene expression. Our current major interests are linked to the three areas described in more detail below, namely Oscillatory Gene Expression, Cell Fate Control, and MicroRNAs. However, we are happy to let the data guide us and have thus also… Continue reading Research
