Welcome to Guillaume!

Guillaume Lavergne graduated from the University of Clermont-Ferrand (France), with a Master’s of Biology in Genetics and Physiology.
He then obtained his PhD working in the Jagla lab at the GReD institute in Clermont-Ferrand where he studied Drosophila muscle stem cells during embryogenesis at the interface between stem cell biology, neurogenesis and myogenesis.
He joined the Roignant group in January 2021 to elucidate the mechanisms underlying the specificity of m6A deposition in Drosophila. He will also investigate the link(s) between epitranscriptomic and epigenetic marks, and the conserved evolutionary features of m6A deposition.
