Evolutionary genetics and ecology

GEE conducts research in genetics, genomics, ecology and evolution. We are interested in fungal, bacterial, insect, plant and bird ecology and evolution, in species interactions (in particular plant-parasite interactions) and in the evolutionary genomics of adaptation.

We want to understand how species and populations adapt to their environment and we want to identify the underlying genes and processes. Our biological models include plant pathogenic fungi, domesticated fungi involved in making cheese and dry-cured meat, bacterial pathogens of humans (Mycobacterium tuberculosis), apple trees, Arabidopsis and its enemies, gall-forming insects, as well as birds and their associated microbes.
