GEMINI

Maternal Interaction With Gametes and Embryo

COST Action FA0702

Working Group I

Experimental Models

 

Leader: Prof. Ann Van Soom

 

Deputy Leader: Dr. Andras Dinnyes

 

Aims and objectives

I) To establish the optimum in vivo model(s) for creation of an interactome map/database of maternal interaction/communication with gametes and embryos.

II) To establish the optimum currently available in vitro model(s) for creation of an interactome map/database of maternal interaction/communication with gametes and embryos and to establish strategies for progress from in vivo towards in vitro models for creation of the interactome map.

III) To establish guidelines and standards for the use of in vivo and in vitro models in investigation of the effect of maternal interaction/communication with gametes and embryos allowing investigators in different European labs to share data and information.
