The Comparative Genomic Group focuses on the characterization of the genetic variation, epigenetic and transcriptomes in non-human primates.

 

The objective is to have a global picture of primate-to-human molecular evolution to understand genomic evolution of our closest relatives, as it has been proven to provide valuable insights about mutations that may drive current human diseases. The Group uses different kinds of primate samples and employs computational approaches to analyze whole genome datasets from a wide variety of primates and other species, which allow the prediction of genomic, epigenetic and expression differences between species and individuals.



The Group participates in projects such as funded by the European Research Council, the DiverSea Project, the Plan Estatat de Investigación Científica y de Innovación 2021-2023, the NIH-RO1 and AGAUR.
