GeneScale - Multi-scale Analyses in Landscape Genomics

In collaboration with the teams of Felix Gugerli at WSL  and Stéphane Joost at EPFL, we are resequencing alpine populations of Arabis alpina for association of genetic variation with environmental heterogeneity characterized at high resolution. In addition to inferring the scale of “local” adaptation, our focus is on the role of transposable elements.
