Wildlife Genomics Research Group
We are an international group of people studying ecological, evolutionary, and conservation questions related to wildlife with the help of molecular methods. Current research includes, e.g., studying the history of animal domestication, and investigating the genetic effects of post-glacial recolonization processes, habitat fragmentation, and radioactive radiation. The study organisms consist of several species of birds, mammals and plants.
At the moment, the group consists of 14 core members working at the Departments of Ecology and the Department of Genetics and Physiology. In addition to research, the group members are involved tightly in the education of biology students.
