Yonatan Tzur Genetics +972-2-6585-442
Research Fields: In our lab we aim to study the process of oocyte development. Some of the specific goals are: 1. Chromosome dynamics and structural changes during the meiotic segregations. 2. Sister chromatid cohesion maintenance and removal. 3. Genomic control on gene expression that facilitate the meiotic program. In our studies we make use of two novel techniques we recently designed and continue to develop: 1. CRISPR/Cas9 genome engineering and manipulations. 2. Single oocyte transcriptome analysis. Our long term goal is to study these processes so we could understand the reasons for the decline in human oocyte quality, which leads to exponential increase in birth defects before a women turns 40.
