Welcome to the Luca Lab


We are interested in understanding the genetic and molecular basis of inter-individual and inter-population differences in complex phenotypes.

We combine evolutionary and functional genomics approaches to study intermediate phenotypes (e.g.: transcription factor binding, gene expression, protein secretion, etc.) and how they are affected by gene-environment interactions.
