The Root Knot Nematodes are some of the world’s most important crop pathogens. The genus contains a wide range of reproductive modes, with repeated transitions between some reproductive modes. This raises interesting possibilities to investigate the genomic consequences of the loss of […]
Genomic approaches (RADtag sequencing) are being used to examine the genetic impacts of introduced species; including genetic bottlenecks, hybridisation and introgression. Population genomic approaches are applied to the study of the crucian carp, Carassius carassius
The crucian […]
I’m interested in comparative genomics, large scale phylogenetics and molecular evolution. I’m particularly interested in the way in which the evolutionary forces of recombination, selection, mutation, and drift influence genomic content. We also work on projects using phylogenetics and DNA barcoding to better understand […]
Dispersal and colonisation of new habitats are among the most important events in an organism’s life. I am interested in the evolutionary causes and consequences of dispersal – for example – how does geography influence dispersal, what makes certain species so successful at […]
I am interested in the mechanisms which shape biodiversity, from the effects of selection at individual loci, to the behavioural aspects of mate preference which may cause populations to diverge, and also the larger scale genomic processes involved in adaptive radiations. My recent work […]
Dr Bernd Hänfling
I’m broadly interested in applying molecular tools to study the ecology and evolution of (predominantly aquatic) organisms and ecosystems. More specifically my research concentrates on: environmental DNA (eDNA) and metabarcoding as tools to study biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in aquatic habitats; geographic structure of […]
