The main research focus of the Petrovič laboratory is on global regulation of cellular homeostasis, with a specific focus on lipid metabolism, with the aim to extend the obtained knowledge to biomedical and biotechnological applications.

We use yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the most suitable eukaryotic model organism for genome-scale studies, to investigate basic biological phenomena.

The experimental techniques used in the laboratory include high-throughput genetics for QTL mapping (X-QTL), synthetic genetic array (SGA) analysis and synthetic dosage lethality (SDL) analysis, high-content screening, chemogenomics, high-throughput phenotyping and transcriptome analysis. We also develop bioinformatics algorithms for the analysis of functional genomics data.
