The genetic basis of adaptation

The central theme of my group is the genetic basis of adaptation. A combination of empirical and theoretical approaches from population genetics and related areas, such as statistical genetics and molecular evolution, are used. Empirical research focuses on Arabidopsis thaliana but we work on a wide range of organisms, including primates.

Keywords: Population genetics / evolutionary biology / GWAS / Arabidopsis / genomics

Subject area(s): Genomic & Computational Biology | Plant Biology | Evolution & Ecology
