OUR MISSION

We are one of the very few teams in the Czech Republic that make use of the powerful genetics of the fruit fly Drosophila and the nematode C. elegans. Click here to see our Pubmed record. We use various reverse genetic approaches (transformation, mutagenesis, RNAi), in invertebrate models to address basic biological questions. In addition, we strive to adapt these tools to insect species that are relevant for evolutionary-developmental (evo-devo) studies. In focus of our projects are important biological processes including:
  • Development
  • Steroid signaling
  • Insect Metamorphosis
  • Stress response
