The Plant Ecological Genomics Group has a new member joining to carry out his BSc Erasmus internship. Utku, from the İzmir Institute of Technology, Turkey, is working on seed phenotypes and pollen fertility in interploidy crosses. Welcome! 


Plant Population Biology conference 2019

The GfÖ-Specialist Group Plant Population Biology (PopBio) held their conference in Warsaw this year and lots of members of our department attended. Emma gave a talk on barriers to gene flow in Arabidopsis.

Paper on altitudinal differentiation in Arabidopsis is out!

New paper demonstrating strong altitudinal differentiation in Arabidopsis arenosa regardless of ploidy in Western Carpathians has been just published in Annals of  Botany. A collaborative work of our group lead by Guillaume with significant contribution of Majda, Majda, and our previous students Adam and Jana.

Polyploidy 2019 conference
