Why GEG is interested in the Fragile X Syndrome? PDF Print

Our interest in the Fragile X Syndrome came with our close relation to the clinical molecular biology laboratory Neurogene (, established in 2004. Since then, several graduate and undergraduate students have been involved in several aspects of the syndrome. We are particular interested in the molecular and metabolic mechanisms underling the disease. Applying metabolic engineering concepts to mathematical model of the FMRP function, the related protein, is becoming as challenging as fun. Laboratory experiments are now being done with the help of several other groups, including those at Neurogene, in Florianópolis, and at the MIND institute, University of California at Davis.
