Plant Evolutionary Genomics

Prof. Sariel Hübner

We integrate experimental ecology, high-throughput genomics and bioinformatics to study the genetics of adaptation, speciation and domestication in crop plants and their wild relatives. Much of our work focuses on identifying the genetic changes that underlie the formation of new varieties and species, and more generally, the genotype-phenotype-environment interaction.



We have an open PhD/postdoc position!!!
