Research activities


The main focus of the group concerns the understanding of the interplay of population structure, mating systems and selection. For this, we use different approaches, from theory and the development of statistical tools to field observations via experimental work. The main biological models are different species of freshwater snails and a gynodioecious perenial plant, Silene vulgaris. On the theoretical side, we investigate the dynamics of multilocus genetic system under the influence of selection and drift, and develop statistical methods to infer mating systems and population structure.
