Research interests:

We are interested in the role of heteroplasmy and recombination on mtDNA evolution as well as in mito-nuclear interactions. We are further interested in microbial ecology and evolution.

Research organisms:

Drosophila species, Bivalves, Frogs.


We have the expertise to produce small- and large- scale sequencing datasets, including next-generation sequencing data. We are able to handle these data using either homemade scripts (Unix, Python, R) or ready-to-use software (e.g. QIIME).
