Molecular Ecology Research Group (MERG)

 


We use molecular methods to study processes in wild populations. Our research field bridges across behavioral ecology and evolutionary biology focussing at the individual and population level. All model systems are vertebrate, and examples include moose, rabbit, brown bear, trout, char, lion, African wild dog, and ptarmigan spp. Many projects require advanced genetic methods such as eDNA, SNP microarray, and high throughput sequencing. The extracted genetic data are then supplemented with other data types before statistical analyses (e.g. behavioral, demographic, physiological or spatial data). Several project are run in collaboration with research groups at other universities or organisations in Sweden and abroad.
