Dynamics of Genetic Information: fundamental bases and cancer (DIG-Cancer) (UMR3244)

The teams in this unit aim to better understand the mechanisms that maintain genome and epigenome integrity and expression and study how disruptions in these processes contribute to cancers and age-related human diseases.

A garden of forking paths: branching, switching and reversal in meiotic recombination
Abstract

Meiotic recombination involves repair of double strand DNA breaks by homologous recombination to form crossovers and noncrossovers. Current models suggest that different mechanisms form these two products: noncrossovers by synthesis dependent strand annealing; COs by double Holliday junction formation and resolution. In testing these predictions, we found evidence for remarkable dynami

"Genetics together with the next-generation" - A Symposium to celebrate the career of Alain Nicolas
The symposium "Genetics together with the next-generation" will honor the career of Alain Nicolas, dedicated to the study of the mechanisms of genome maintenance and inter-generational transmission. Beyond his numerous scientific contributions, Alain has also contributed to training an important new generation of scientists, gathering the international scientific community through the or
