De Laboratorio de Reparo del ADN

Welcome to the DNA repair Laboratory

Lab crew!! (2006)

Coordinator: Carlos Frederico Martins Menck

This group develops work on Graduation and research in the field of DNA damaged repair and their biological implications, such as cell death and mutagenesis. The lesions in the genetic material may be introduced by environmental agents (as those from pollution and even sunlight), genotoxic chemical products or also byproducts of the cellular metabolism, and they may be the main causes for, in humans, cancer formation or aging. Thus, these DNA repair processes have been highly relevant during evolution and are found in all living organisms, from bacteria to humans.
