The Labex Dynamo

DYNAMO aims to understand the supramolecular organization of the energy transducing apparatus of both mitochondria and chloroplasts.

This Labex has three major research objectives.
It aims to:

    1. better understand how the modes of gene expression found in mitochondria and chloroplasts differ from those prevailing in the prokaryotic world from which they hail;
    2. understand the biogenesis of these organelles and their  membrane dynamics;

    3. identify the molecular basis of regulatory mechanisms that govern the contribution of these organelles to cellular bioenergetics at the structural and functional level.

DYNAMO provide a theoretical and methodological training on issues of intracellular bioenergetics, molecular modeling, microbiology, photobiology, membrane biology and biomimetic chemistry. Partner laboratories of the Labex host students and post-doctoral fellows who bring to this scientific project their creativity and enthusiasm for the challenges of intracellular bioenergetics.
