Fyodor Kondrashov awarded an ERC Starting Grant (25/07/2013)
Fyodor Kondrashov, group leader of the Evolutionary Genomics laboratory and ICREA research professor at the CRG has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant for his project “Systematic investigation of epistasis in molecular evolution - EinME”.
We strive to create an open environment for inquiry of many different questions in different areas of biology and evolution.
Currently, we are focused on computational studies of genomic information including sequences, expression data, protein and RNA structures, genetic and protein networks. We analyze these data under the prism of population genetics and evolutionary theory to describe novel evolutionary and biological phenomena. In short, we use any data that we can get our hand on to understand something new about evolution and biology.
We have several fruitful collaborations with experimental groups working on specific genes or phyla and we are also pursuing simple experimental projects in support of our computational inquiries
