Beskrivning (abstrakt)

Coevolutionary of symbiont Epichloe festucae and its host Festuca rubra in natural populations in Northern Hemisphere.

Allmän beskrivning

We're investigating the coevolution of the symbiotic microbe Epichloe festucae with its host Festuca rubra. Festuca species are crucial in grasslands, and Epichloë relies on these hosts, providing conditional benefits. Our research, in collaboration with the Institute of Biotechnology at the University of Helsinki, involves population genetics and Illumina sequencing methods.
