  • Intérêts de recherche

    - L'évolution des familles multigéniques:

    - L'évolution concertée des gènes codant l'ARN ribosomal 5S

    - Aux caractéristiques et aux effets des conversions géniques entre les membres des familles multigéniques

    - L’évolution des pseudogènes remaniés

    - L’évolution du gène responsable de la synthèse de la vitamine C (le gène codant pour la L-gulono-γ-lactone oxydase) qui a « ressuscité » à plusieurs reprises lors de l'évolution des vertébrés.
