The Laboratory of Microbial Genomics studies how gene expression is regulated during the cell cycle and in response to various stimuli, such as nutrients or stress. We want to understand how this regulation affects the organization and dynamics of the cell nucleus, and how it contributes to the maintenance of genome integrity. In our studies, we employ a range of genetic, biochemical, cell biology, computational and genomic methods using predominantly the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe as a model.

We are also open to collaboration with researchers needing Next Generation Sequencing data analyses (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq).

We are looking for talented and motivated students to join our team (currently MSc / BSc who study in our Czech programmes). If you are interested, get in touch!

We have also several open bioinformatics/biotech projects for students as part of our collaboration with the Slovak Academy of Sciences (please get in touch for more details).

We are part of the Department of Cell Biology, Faculty of Science, Charles University.

We are funded by the the Czech Science Foundation, Charles University Grant Agency, and Charles University program SVV.
