Camille Berthelot is a G5 junior group leader and heads the Comparative Functional Genomics group. She is an evolutionary genomicist by training and an expert on the evolution of genomes and gene regulation in mammals and fish, related to the acquisition of new evolutionary traits or to dramatic genomic changes, such as polyploidizations. She is interested in how new functions acquired during evolution relate to human disease. Camille is an INSERM research associate.
Endometriosis is a chronic gynecologic disease that occurs when endometrial tissue, which normally lines the inside of the uterus, grows outside of the uterine cavity. Endometriosis is thought to develop when endometrial fragments contained […]

Decoding the genetics of menstruation evolution in primates The shedding of the superficial endometrium (menstruation) is a recent evolutionary attribute. It occurs only in few placental mammals (including humans and baboons), when in most […]
