Our lab is interested in transposons using an approach combining biochemistry, cell biology, bioinformatics and mathematical modelling.

Our current projects are:
- To determine the mechanism of mariner transposition
- To find the functions of a primate-specific domesticated transposases
- To engineer mariner transposons and their derivatives as gene vectors
