DYNAMO aims to understand the supramolecular organization of the energy transducing apparatuses of both mitochondria and chloroplasts.
This Labex has three major research objectives.
It aims to:
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;
understand the biogenesis of these organelles and their membrane dynamics;
identify the molecular basis of regulatory mechanisms that govern the contribution of these organelles to cellular bioenergetics at the structural and functional level.
DYNAMO provides the students-it hosts access to 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.
