Molecular Ecology and Evolution Lab
MEEL is a research lab comprised of several smaller groups within the field of Molecular Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. The DNA lab, which is the common centre of our activities, was formed in the late 1980's by Torbjörn von Schantz. We use classical methods such as Sanger sequencing, and modern approaches like high-throughput sequencing to answer our research questions.
The studies in our lab cover a broad range of organisms including mammals, birds, insects, parasites and bacteria. Irrespective of organism, the projects make use of various genetic markers to identify processes of isolation, resolving phylogenetic relationships, testing host–parasite associations or identify genes under selection.
