Bensasson, Douda

Research interests: Genomes only make sense in the light of evolution, so we use a combined evolutionary and bioinformatics approach to study the parts of genomes people know least about: centromeres, repetitive and other noncoding DNA. We are also interested in the invisible world of microbes....
