The main focus of the group are the evolution, genomics and ecology of host-parasite and host-mutualist interactions. Research topics include local adaptation, coevolution, evolution in metapopulations, the evolution of microbiota, the evolution of sex, genome evolution, trait mapping and genetic/genomic architecture. In the last years we developed a Diversity Panel of the crustacean Daphnia magna with the aim to understand species wide patterns of genomic and phenotypic diversity.
Parasites - partners for life!
