Mauro Mandrioli

About me

I’m currently coordinating the Laboratory of Insect Genetics and Biosciences (IGB) located in the Department of Life Sciences at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. My main research topics are related to the study of aphid chromosomes.
I’m responsible for different courses for the first and second level degree in Biological Sciences and Natural Sciences where I teach Genetics, Cytogenetics and Comparative Genomics.
