Laura Baldo

PostDoc in the group of Walter Salzburger.

Current research

I am broadly interested in the molecular processes underlying the diversification of life, from genetics to expression differences. In particular, I am fascinated by the concept of animal as a supra-organism, that is a community of both host and symbionts, and how this partnership has shaped animal life. I am currently investigating the role of symbiotic processes in leading cichlid major evolutionary transitions.
