ERC-2021-ADG – Deciphering de novo gene birth in populations (NovoGenePop)

The key objective of the EU-funded NovoGenePop project, led by Mar Albà, is to understand how de novo gene birth emerges and explore the hypothesis that the process involves differences in gene content between individuals. To investigate this, researchers will develop novel computational methods for evaluating all transcripts in different biological systems and identify potential mutations that have led to the evolution of new genes. The project has a budget of about 2.5 Million Euros and is for the period 2022-2026.
