Dr. Yonatan Tzur graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem on 2007. At the Zamore lab Yonatan worked on the detection of argonaute proteins and on the let-7/Dicer feedback loop. Yonatan then joined Prof. Monica Colaiacovo's lab at Harvard Medical School where he worked on chromosome dynamics through the meiotic cell divisions and developed the CRISPR-Cas technology in C. elegans. Yonatan assumed his independent position at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem as a principal investigator on 2014. His lab focuses on understanding how gene control drives chromosome segregations during gametogenesis at the transcriptional and translational levels and on developing genome engineering tools.
