Projects

barcoding and phylogeny of tropic oribatid mites (associated with EFForTS)
 – using traditional and next generation sequencing methods to determine and delineate new and common oribatid mite species from Indonesia

community phylogeny of oribatid mites (EFForTS and Biodiversity Exploratories)
– using traditional and next generation sequencing methods to analyse temperate forest communities of oribatid mites, to analyse community assembly processes

phylogeny of oribatid mites
– build a new and resolved phylogenetic tree based on genome data

genomic patterns of sex and asex
– analyse and compare genetic variance between sexual and asexual oribatid mite species to understand selection processes of different reproductive  modes
