Laboratory description

We are interested in molecular bases of sleep and sleep disorders. We use the mouse as our model and perform genetic analysis in several sleep disorders including narcolepsy, Kleine-Levin syndrome, and sleepwalking. techniques used are: transcriptome, transgenesis, metabolome, genotyping (SNP based microarray).
