Yonatan Tzur, PhD
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.
