Joint retreat with Levi Yant's group & allies

We spent three days of inspiring scientific discussions about ecological & population genomics (not only) in Arabidopsis in a nice autumn setting of Křivoklátsko protected area. Group of our collaborator Levi (Nottingham University) and our colleagues from GMI Vienna, VIB Ghent and University Bochum joined as well!

Writing retreat to Kvilda

Our group spent a nice couple of days at the Kvilda field station in the Šumava Mts to discuss and improve our current manuscripts.
