Research topics

Characterization of peptides and proteins involved in the reproduction and protection of gametes in the cephalopod Sepia officinalis-Analysis of neuropeptidome, peptidome  and secretome of genital apparatus.
Approaches: Transcriptomics (next-generation Sequencing) - peptidomics – Proteomics (HPLC purification, SDS page, identification by mass spectrometry) - Functional testing (toxicity, antibacterial, myotropic…).
