NYUAD Biology Labs

Laboratory of Algal, Systems, and Synthetic Biology

Our group aims to explore fundamental questions on evolution, phenotype-genotype relations, and metabolism of algae. We use Chlamydomonas reinhardtii as a model organism to explore these questions at systems level and extend our findings to other algae that we ourselves are isolating from the UAE and other locations.

The Idaghdour Lab

The Idaghdour laboratory uses statistical genetic methods and multiple types of high-throughput genomic data including genome sequencing, epigenetic and transcriptomic profiling, proteomics and metabolomics to study these interactions in the human circulating immune system.
