Welcome to the iGE3 website !

iGE3, the Institute of Genetics and Genomics of Geneva, is a dynamic structure of the University of Geneva to promote research and teaching related to the human and other genomes. Our ambition is to understand life in the light of the structure, variation and function of genomes, and to contribute to the promotion of health based on the studies of the various human genomes.

  1. The awesome power of ribosome profiling

    To study the regulation of gene expression genome-widely microarrays and deep sequencing are widely used. However, mRNA levels long used as a measurement of gene expression, does not always translate into protein production, because translational elongation regulation plays a crucial role in modulating gene expression. Ribosome Profiling (or Ribosome Foot-printing, or Ribo-Seq) is the most modern technique to study the mechanics of translation and co-translational processes in vivo...
