Project description
The research group studies the genetics of adaptation and speciation in Arabidopsis lyrata, and the genetic of pine adaptation to climatic conditions. This project will expand these studies to the genomewide level, by adopting next generation sequencing and high throughput genotyping methods. These methods will require more emphasis on bioinformatics, but will also allow answering new questions, at the genomewidelevel.
