'We investigate the patterns and mechanisms of genomic variation in disease'

Today, Sara Lafuente has presented a poster about the crabs that we find inside the cockles while Alicia L. Bruzos presented the effects that colchicine has on the integrity of DNA.

Today, three PhD students from Genomes & Diseases lab have presented their preliminary results at VI Edición Investigación Biomédica del Cáncer en Galicia (IBCG)

Seila Díaz Costas was awarded an Assemble Plus project to asses the disseminated neoplasia of Irish cockles at the National University of Ireland Galway. After spending one month in the lab of Prof. Mark Johnson, Seila and Alicia come back to G&D with plenty of new samples to analyse.

Andrea Varela y Miriam Álvarez, estudantes de Comunicación Audiovisual da UVigo, presentan su video sobre Scuba Cancers al concurso de GCiencia y quedan finalistas.

Today at the International Society for Evolution, Ecology and Cancer Conference Martín and Alicia have talked about their preliminary results on their PhD projects. Alex Cagan has sketched them during the talk, take a look at the draw

Today, Adrián Báez from the University of Cambridge is visiting Genomes & Disease lab to consolidate our collaborations and talk about an age-old cancer genome

Genomes and Disease lab has taken advantage of #DNAday to bring genomics to students so they could understand how important science is.

This year our group changes it's name !!!

Today, Alicia L. Bruzos that has been working with PhD. Michael Metzger on CRISPR experiments with clams is coming back to Genomes & Disease lab to share her results.

We interacted with the general people at the main Outreach Activities Day of our research centre CIMUS

Talk presentation by Monica Martinez on the development of tools for the identification of cancer retrotransposition in the clinic

We have celebrated the 3rd Meeting of the International Common Cockle Genome Consortium (ICCGC)

Our group was present at the #IBCG2018 with two talks by the Postdoctoral researcher Monica Martinez and the PhD Studet Eva G. Alvarez !

Today Andrea Lema, joins Mobile Genomes & Disease lab as a lab technician.

Today Javier Temes, physicist and biologist, joins Mobile Genomes & Disease lab as a bioinformatician.

PhD. Michael Metzger has visited MGD lab to establish current and future collaborations between our groups. Metzger's lab focuses on the intersection between genomics, cancer, and the evolution of host-pathogen interactions. During these days we have also had the opportunity to attend a talk he gave at the CIMUS about transmissible cancers.

Over the next three years, Sonia will study new mutational processes mediated by retrotransposons in cancer. Congratulations!

He will join the SCUBA CANCERS Project team to explore the genetic causes of cancer under the sea

She was awarded a €200K fellowship from Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC) to investigate the impact of somatic retrotransposition on cancer genome function

He presents our recent work entitled 'Pan-cancer analysis of whole genomes reveals driver rearrangements promoted by LINE-1 retrotransposition in human tumours'
