Work interests

My role is to bring my technical expertise to team projects in terms of genetic and molecular ecology experiments to analyze genetic variability (at the genomic or transcriptomic level) of non-model species (e.g: wild domestic mice, pygmy mice, four striped mice, pea aphids, Tilapia fish). I carry out and develop DNA and RNA extraction protocols, as well as PCR DNA amplification, genotyping (microsatellite, SNP, or restriction markers), and sequencing (Sanger and NGS) experiments. I also prepare sequencing libraries (including RAD-seq (Restriction site Associated DNA sequencing) for high-throughput sequencing. I participate in various activities such as field missions (capturing small rodents) in South Africa in collaboration with an English-speaking team, maintenance of wild mice in a breeding facility, and the management of collections of tissues and DNA extracts (Access databases).
