Welcome to the Claeys Bouuaert Lab

Our laboratory is interested in the molecular processes that impact the inheritance of genetic material, in particular in the context of meiosis – the cellular program that generates reproductive cells. We use biochemistry and molecular genetics approaches with the model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae to work out the intricate mechanisms of DNA recombination that are implicated in the formation of gametes.
