In our group we have a passion for understanding fundamental aspects of the structure-function relationship in proteins and nucleic acids. We’re interested in elucidating how organellar replisomes work, using the flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana and yeast as models. As engineers, we study protein properties to modify them and use them as biotechnological tools. Finally, we're convinced that protein and nucleic acid evolution is studied in three dimensions and not as a linear sequence, for this we use the triosephosphate isomerase and proteins that have suffered duplication events as models.
