MOBILE GENOMES & DISEASE

'We investigate the impact of mobile DNA on disease, and the genetic mechanisms that make cancers transmissible'

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'


Our PhD student Alicia L. Bruzos got the first prize for the best poster presentation at the XX Marine Resources Forum for her research on cockle reference genome sequencing


Our PhD student Eva G. Alvarez got the first prize for the best poster presentation at the IBCG2017 meeting for her research on viruses and cancer


Over the next two years, Eva and Martin will study the role of mobile DNA in the cancer genome
