Welcome to the Großhans Lab at FMI. We use C. elegans and mammalian cells to study mechanisms and function of oscillatory gene expression, cell fate control mechanisms, and microRNAs. 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
