Labs

Current and past labs I have worked in.

 

LENZ LAB

We study the evolutionary forces and constraints that shape the functional diversity of the vertebrate immune system. Our research is based on computational analysis of genomic and epidemiological data from human populations, but also includes molecular and experimental approaches using the three-spined stickleback and other model species.

Emmy Noether Group for Evolutionary Immunogenomics, Department of Evolutionary Ecology, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, Germany.

BRYJA LAB

We study molecular ecology of vertebrates, with a focus on interactions between neutral and adaptive genetic variation, immunogenetics, sexual selection, andconservation genetics.

Department of Population Biology, Institute of Vertebrate Biology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
