Project: Models of genetic evolution
Description: In this line, we study in detail and in an unified way, several models used in modelling evolutionary dynamics (i.e., Darwinian evolution). In particular, we rigorously study the WrightFisher and the Moran models (finite population stochastic processes), the Kimuraequation (a degenerated partialdifferential equation of driftdiffusion type, supplemented by conservation laws) and the replicator equation (an ordinary differential equation, popular in evolutionary game theory). Several different mathematical theories are used, e.g., stochastic process, theory of Markov chains, partial differential equations of elliptic and parabolic type, game theory etc. Currently, all these models are being reformulated in an unified way using variational formalism (gradient flows).

Project: Constitutional chromosomal rearrangements in the human genome
Description: Using the database of Chromosomal Imbalance and Phenotype in Humans using Ensembl Resources (DECIPHER), we determine which are the chromosomal fragile sites more involved in constitutional chromosomal rearrangements.
