Jose Luis Gomez Skarmeta

Centro Andaluz de Biologia del Desarrollo
Universidad Pablo de Olavide
Carretera de Utrera Km1
Seville, Seville 41700


Taxa Studied: Invertebrate Animals, Vertebrate Animals
Techniques Employed: Solexa (Illumina) Sequencing, Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, In Situ Hybridization, Antibody Staining, Confocal Microscopy, Transgenesis, Morpholinos, Mutagenesis, Other, 4C-seq, ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq
Research Description: In our group we are combining epigenomics, chromosome capture assays, transgenic enhancer experiments and mutagenic studies to determine how cis-regulatory elements and chromatin structure contribute to development and evolution, and how alteration in this non-coding part of the genome affects human health. To that end, we are using several vertebrates (mouse, zebrafish and human) and invertebrate (sea urchin and amphioxus) model systems.
