Ensuring integrity in gametogenesis

To ensure the creation of new individuals

The creation of new individuals is the basis for perpetuating the species. The gametes are the sole cell types that can achieve this purpose through the transmission of genetic and epigenetic information into the next generation. Since the quality of the gametes is essential to ensure healthy and fertile individuals, gametogenesis must be a robust process that produces functional gametes. We aim to understand how the “integrity” of gametes is constructed in vivo and how to reconstitute it in vitro.
