Markus Lindh

Postdoctoral fellow | PhD

I am studying evolutionary ecology and the underlying genetic factors and mechanisms involved in the major evolutionary transition to multicellularity. The goal of this evolutionary ecology project is to determine what genes and genetic mechanisms are key in the evolution of multicellularity, in particular in the model organism Chlamydomonas sp. but also among other unicellular organisms carrying the capacity to become multicellular. I will use phylogenetic comparative approaches as well as experimental evolution with state-of-the-art molecular tools to target the overall goal of this project. The project "Origins of organismal complexity" is part of a larger collaborative project "Extended Evolutionary Synthesis" funded by the Templeton foundation.
