Research area:

I studied Molecular Biology and Genetics for my Bachelor's degree and shifted my focus towards evolutionary biology for my Master's degree at Middle East Technical University (Turkey). During my PhD I will be concentrating on Aquilegia species (columbines) occurring in Europe. Using genome sequence data, I aim to shed light on the processes that drive or contribute to species diversity in Aquilegia.

Research area:

I received my master's degree in molecular biology form the University of Zagreb, Croatia in May 2012. During the last year of my studies I became interested in population genetics and did my thesis in quantitative genetics using Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model organism. After finishing my master's I continued my work in the Laboratory of Evolutionary Genetics at the Rudjer Boskovic Institute in Zagreb. While there, I started to develop an interest in computational biology and population genetics theory. I finally decided to do my PhD in population genetics and therefore applied for a position at the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics.

My PhD project will focus on analyzing putatively unselected sites in the Drosophila genome, such as short introns and fourfold degenerate sites. Special emphasis will be given to studying differences in neutrally evolving sites between the autosomes and the X chromosome as well as between different Drosophila populations.

Research area:

In 2012 I graduated from the Department of Mathematics, University of Crete (Greece), receiving a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics. After attending all the basic courses of Molecular Biology offered by the Biology Department of the University of Crete in 2013, I did my Master in “Molecular Biology and Biomedicine” in which I focused on theoretical population genetics and specifically on detecting positive selection (selective sweeps) along the genome, using pairs of consecutive SNPs. My main research interests concern problems within computational biology and how mathematical and statistical methods can be implemented in population genetics, phylogenetics and evolutionary biology in general. My goal is to develop rigorous mathematical models that can be used to study molecular sequence evolution, the selective forces that shape biodiversity, and generally to give answers about adaptive genetic change, genomic function and ecology.

During my PhD, I will focus on genomic signatures of migration between populations adapted to different environments. This project will take advantage of a D. simulans population, which evolved for more than 100 generations in a hot environment and more than 55 generations in a cold environment, and they have been shown to be adapted to their new thermal environment. The goal of this project is to study the fate of alleles that migrate from one population into the other and understand the genomic signatures of migration and selection. Generally, it is a highly interdisciplinary project as it combines experimental evolution with next generation sequencing (E&R studies), bioinformatics and evolutionary modeling.

Research area:

My fascination of nature and its secrets led to my BSc in Biology at the University of Vienna. During my MSc I decided for Microbial Ecology. At first I tried to avoid bioinformatics - I wanted to wear a lab coat and do experiments. But my supervisor came up with a bioinformatics project to which I finally agreed. Thus I investigated chlamydial transcription factors and ended up in a forest of phylogenetic trees.

Since my interests cover a broad field I made another move from prokaryotes to eukaryotes for my PhD. Currently I am a PhD student at the Institute of Animal Breeding and Genetics and associated with the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics. The project is focused on the male-specific part of the Y-chromosome (MSY) of the horse. I want to create a reference of the MSY that can be used for haplotype ascertainment of stallions from different modern horse breeds. The findings will allow for inferences of male horse history on a molecular level which can be compared to pedigree-based knowledge.

Research area:

I graduated as a mathematician from the University of Heidelberg in Germany in August 2013. For my diploma thesis I analyzed limit theorems for a class of Brownian semi-stationary processes. For my PhD studies I decided to turn my focus to applied mathematics, particularly as I have always been interested in natural sciences.

Thus I joined the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics, where I look forward to working in an interdisciplinary environment and applying mathematical concepts to population genetic problems. My first project aims to improve recombination rate estimators by shrinkage, when the mean squared error is considered as the measure of performance. I will also work on the adaptation of statistical methods suitable for individually sequenced data to pooled Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data.

Research area:

I studied biology with specialization in genetics, and for my master I moved to the field of bioinformatics. I started my research in 2011 in plant cytogenetics and molecular biology looking for meiosis-related genes in Arabidopsis thaliana. Then I
worked in ancient human DNA and Wolf conservation genomics during my master, using both molecular and bioinformatics approaches. Due to my heterogeneous background, my interest is broad and combines evolution and computational biology.

During my PhD, I will focus on natural populations, and on developing tools and pipelines for genomic data. My aim is to understand natural variation and the effect of different environmental conditions in genomic signatures. For this purpose, I’m involved in two complementary projects: studying adaptation of Biscutella didyma in a rainfall gradient, and detecting selective sweeps in natural populations of Drosophila genus.

Research area:

In December 2012 I began my PhD under the supervision of Professor Joachim Hermisson, where I will be able to combine my different backgrounds of Biology and Mathematics.

We investigate the process of speciation including variable rates of gene flow (parapatric speciation) and ask under which conditions postzygotic isolation barriers can build up. Our study is based on recent analytical results by Bank et al., 2012, who show that the classical hybrid incompatibility model for postzygotic isolation barriers in allopatry, the (Bateson-)Dobzhansky-Muller model, provides a viable mechanism for the evolution of postzygotic isolation also in the presence of non-negligible gene flow.

Motivated by frequent empirical observations of phenomena like the large X-effect, Haldane's rule, and the occurrence of cytoplasmic incompatibilities, we expand the previous results on autosome-autosome Dobzhansky-Muller-incompatibilities (DMI). We investigate how the involvement of X-chromosomes and mitochondrial genes changes the evolutionary dynamics of DMIs.

Research area:

I was awarded both my bachelor and master degree by the department of Agronomy at National Taiwan University (NTU). During my undergraduate study, I started a research project investigating the genetic architecture of anaerobic germination in rice and I continued working on this project for my master thesis. Using approaches in both genomics and transcriptomics, we associated natural variation during the anaerobic germination trait to the variation in genomic haplotypes and crucial gene expression. After that, I spent a year as a research assistant, involved in several research projects including a study on the diversity of the mitochondrial genome in rice as well as a population genetic study on the plumage coloration of bulbuls, a native Taiwanese bird species.

My research experience motivated me in pursuing further knowledge in the field of genetics. Therefore, I joined the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics and jumped into the world of population genetics of Drosophila. I’m sure that I can broaden my view in this field during my PhD, studying the sexually antagonistic evolution in experimentally evolved populations. Due to their different roles in reproduction, males and females could have opposing trait optima for a given phenotype, leading to sexual conflict in selection and resulting in sexual dimorphism at both transcriptomic and phenotypic levels. Evidence of this sexual dimorphism was widely observed in a  number of organisms. However, the resolving mechanisms of the sexual conflict remain obscured. The main goal of my PhD project is to unveil this mystery, taking advantage of a special design in experimental evolution. By investigating the evolution of the transcriptomes of both sexes in experimentally evolved populations, we are able to acquire direct evidence on how evolution works in the population and we aim to obtain novel insights into how sexual conflict is resolved during  evolution.

I started my academic path with Bachelor's degree in Animal Science when I realised my greatest interest lies in genetics. Therefore I started my Master's degree in Genetics and Animal Breeding at University of Zagreb (Croatia) and successfully defended my Master's thesis on inferring genetic diversity and effective population size of a Croatian native dog breed population using pedigree data.

Understanding the genetics of adaptation in changing environments is one of the biggest questions in modern evolutionary ecology. During my PhD project I will search for answers to this question by using E&R (Evolve & Resequence) method in combination with RNAseq. I will explore the transcriptomic response of experimentally evolved Drosophila simulans populations, which have been adapting to new environments (hot and cold temperatures) for many generations in order to identify patterns and causes of transcriptomic variation, which underlie the adaptation.

The whole idea behind this project is to find out what are the genomic origins and mechanisms of adaptation, in what way does gene expression evolve, when does the adaptation take off from plasticity, and what genetic mechanisms are underlying the first steps of divergence, which may finally lead to speciation.

Research area:

I completed my bachelor's degree in Ecology and Biodiversity at the University of Salzburg. For my master's degree I decided to shift toward bioinformatics and graduated in March 2015. In my master thesis I detected and investigated copy number variations in low coverage sequencing data of the human genome using a newly developed algorithm cn.MOPS.

During my master studies I developed an interest in population genetics. Therefore, I am grateful for the opportunity to do my PhD at the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics. The main goal of my PhD project is to explore and understand the genomic response of Drosophila simulans populations evolving in a hot fluctuating environment. Because of the special experimental design and possible comparisons to populations developing under different environmental conditions, I am optimistic that I can demystify some dynamics of adaption.

Research area:

I have been interested in insects since my Bachelor studies. For my Bachelor thesis, I studied insect communities in rivers. For my Master thesis, I shifted towards bioinformatics and -omics, studying insecticide resistance in mosquitoes, in a genomic and transcriptomic context. All my previous studies were conducted at the Biology Department, University of Crete, Greece.

Currently, I am a Ph.D. student of the BINGO (Breeding Invertebrates for Next Generation BioControl) Innovative Training Network. I am hosted by the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics, where I study diapause in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster. Diapause is an important adaptation that allows many insects to overwinter and can occur at any developmental stage, depending on the species. D. melanogaster enters an ovarian reproductive diapause, where adult females have immature ovaries and previtellogenic oocytes. The genetic basis of this ecologically extremely important trait is not yet understood. During this project, I will map the genetic variants contributing to diapause in natural D. melanogaster populations. My goal will be accomplished by using a population genetic approach, which incorporates Experimental Evolution and Pool-GWAS and takes advantage of Next Generation Sequencing.

Research area:

I studied Applied Mathematics, with a master degree in Stochastics and Data Science at the University of Torino that I took in October 2017. My master thesis was focused on stochastic modelling and processes, and computational methods. I studied the relationship between longitudinal and time-to-event data applied to a dementia dataset in the elderly. I have always been interested in applications and for my PhD I decided to focus on the natural science field.

During my PhD project I will work on models for data from experimental evolution. As a first task I will evaluate existing methods and then, as a second stage, I will work on the development of new ones. The goal then will be to increase the available tools to understand the response to selection, for example in the case of populations adapting to environmental changes (like temperature changes).

I received my master's degree from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur, India. I am enthusiastic about genome architecture and gene regulation. I study these topics using tools from computational biology and mathematics. Recently I have developed a tool called SNPmatch (web application at https://arageno.gmi.oeaw.ac.at) to genotype samples from even very low-coverage sequencing data for given SNP databases.

For my PhD project with Magnus Nordborg I will try to address several interesting research questions on methylation in the genome of the plant model A. thaliana.

In 2015 I finished my Master's studies in Mathematics at the University of Vienna. During the Master's program my emphasis lay on the biomathematical subjects. My Master's thesis was concerned with a topic in mathematical population genetics and since this intesified my interest in this area, it was natural to apply for a position at the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics.

During my PhD in mathematical population genetics I will be working on multilocus models of selection and drift in subdivided populations.

Research area:

After I received my bachelor’s degree in 2015 I continued my studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) in my hometown Munich with the master program ‘Evolution, Ecology and Systematics’. There, I focused on studies of evolutionary biology and population genetics and their applications in bioinformatics. During my master's thesis I got familiar with the effect of meiotic drive, a process that can lead to a conflict of selection on different levels (‘selfish’ chromosome vs the host organism carrying it), which further deepened my pre-existing interest about the various evolutionary forces shaping DNA and their impact on the respective organism.

For my PhD I will work on the evolution of Transposable Element (TE) activity in Drosophila. TEs can be grouped in different classes and are repetitive parts of the genome able to ‘selfishly reproduce’ (transpose) and reinsert themselves at different positions, independent from the ‘functional’ genome. These elements can have all kinds of evolutionary implications on their host genome, including adaptive advantages as well as deleterious effects, ranging between e.g. only slightly raised metabolic costs to induction of sterility for offspring in certain crosses (hybrid dysgenesis).

I will first contribute to establish a reliable lab protocol for the extraction and the sequencing of long-read DNA sequence data with the MinION sequencing technology. Afterwards, I will
establish a bioinformatic pipeline to identify and categorize the different classes and families of Transposons. Ultimately, by applying this method to certain strains of Drosophila melanogaster, I hope to obtain datasets and analysis tools with which I can contribute to unravel more details about TE evolution and TE-induced evolutionary phenomena like hybrid dysgenesis.

As I was constantly motivated and driven by scientific discoveries, I always wanted to stay in science. I completed my Bachelor's in Information Technology where I learned how the technological improvement in computing power is dramatically changing the world of science. Later, during my Master's in Bioinformatics and Biotechnology, I trained in data analysis as a part of my coursework which expanded my knowledge how to mine omics data and bring out hidden information from it.

Invention of new sequencing technologies created a whole new dimension to how we study a particular biological question. I developed an interest in genome evolution and always wondered about the manipulation of the four bases (A, T, G, C) which generated diverse live forms on earth. One of the key players contributing to genome evolution are transposable elements, also known as selfish DNA, that occupy large parts of the genome in higher eukaryotes. They play a significant role in shaping the genome size and they are involved in many disease conditions by disrupting genes and regulatory regions. So, shedding light on the long-term trends of transposable elements would give a better understanding of their propagation in the genome. For my PhD project I will combine experimental evolution, molecular biological methods and a bioinformatic analysis approach to unravel the evolutionary dynamics of transposable elements in Drosophila species.

Research area:

I was awarded my Bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Minnesota in May 2016, and my Master's degree in Bioinformatics and Theoretical Systems Biology from Imperial College London in the fall of 2017. During my undergraduate studies, I developed an HMM-based method to identify introgression between a selfing/outcrossing pair of the Capsella genus, and used my results to study barriers against gene flow in recently diverged species. My Master's work focused on pedigree analysis and recombination rate mapping in the African mosquito A. gambiae, as well as developing a package to analyze topological sensitivity in ODE networks fit to empirical data.

My research experience spurred in me a fascination for population genetics and the interplay between various biological forces in creating and maintaining species diversity. In my PhD project I will work on the signatures of post-speciation gene flow and long-term balancing selection, primarily using data from the Arabidopsis thaliana 1001 genomes project.

Evolutionary biology and ecology stimulated my interest the most during my undergraduate studies. For my master thesis in the field of plant phylogenetics, I worked on montane and alpine plants of the genus Jurinea (Compositae) in the Caucasus and was very fascinated by the population ecology of the endemics in this region.

To further develop this interest, I started my PhD in October 2016 under the supervision of Ovidiu Paun. The project focuses on understanding the processes leading to speciation, as exemplified by the reiterate occurrence of ecotypes within the plant species Heliosperma pusillum. The analysis of whole transcriptomes and genomes of individuals from natural populations, common garden and transplantations will allow us to clarify the processes driving to ecotype divergence in this species.

I graduated from the Vienna University of Technology, receiving a Bachelor’s degree in technical chemistry and a Master’s degree in biotechnology and bioanalytics. During my studies I was working at the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) Vienna, where I conducted both my Bachelor’s and Master’s thesis focusing on the development of computational approaches to localize post-translational modifications with tandem mass spectrometry-based proteomics.

With the aim of getting a more comprehensive understanding of complex biological systems and their evolution I decided to turn my research interests towards population genetics, combining statistics, genomics and evolutionary biology. The Graduate School of Population Genetics provides me with a vibrant research environment attracting scientists from diverse disciplines, including mathematics, physics and biology.

During my PhD I will investigate the genomic basis of adaptation to a new environment using replicated evolve and resequence studies in Drosophila species. We subjected DNA samples of pooled individuals to next-generation sequencing in order to obtain accurate and time-resolved genome-wide allele frequency estimates. I want to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to shed light on the mechanisms and dynamics of adaptation on a molecular level by applying and developing bioinformatic and statistical tools.

I studied genetics and physiology at the University of Turku in Finland. My interest in evolutionary developmental biology drove me to study eye development in Drosophila melanogaster with former PopGen Vienna faculty member Dr. Alistair McGregor at Oxford Brookes University (UK). During my time working with Alistair, I realised how crucial population genetics is to understand evolution. Before finishing my master’s I also investigated the cytology of spindle formation in D. melanogaster at University of Turku.

In my project at the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics I am using CRISPR-Cas9 to functionally validate loci linked to temperature adaptation during experimental evolution in Drosophila simulans. After validation, my aim is to understand how these alleles make the flies fitter in hot temperature.

Research area:

From my schooling period, I have always liked doing experiments to investigate scientific questions. My interest in basic science motivated me to join the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISERM), Mohali. The active scientific community in IISERM helped me to find out that my research interest lies in Evolutionary Biology. I did an Integrated Bachelors-Masters dual degree in Biology there and graduated in May 2016. I worked in Evolutionary Genetics studying endosymbionts in Trichogramma wasps for my Master’s thesis. My experience from short internships and my Master’s thesis period motivated me to continue on the path of research in Evolution and Genetics. I joined the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics for my Ph.D. in September 2017.

For my Ph.D., I will study the selective forces acting on the adaptation of natural populations to their environment. How organisms evolve to adapt to environmental pressures has always been an intriguing question to me. I will combine experimental evolution and next-generation sequencing to study the evolution of gene expression in two different genotypes of Drosophila melanogaster. I will analyze the gene expression differences in these genotypes in a high-temperature environment.

My interest in sciences and specifically in biology dates back to my years in high school, and this what led into doing my Bachelor’s in a related discipline. I graduated as a molecular biologist and geneticist from the Democritus University of Thrace in Greece in July 2015. My interest in bioinformatics led me to do my Master’s in Bioinformatics and Theoretical Systems Biology at Imperial College London in 2016. For my Master’s thesis project  I got involved in a research that aimed to reveal the relationship between the expression levels of small non-coding RNAs (sncRNAs) and mRNAs in patients diagnosed with paediatric Tuberculosis.

During my Ph.D. project, I will be mainly focused on optimizing novel approaches, such as E&R and Pool-GWAS, for dissecting the genetic basis of complex traits and elucidating the genotype-phenotype spanning. Understanding and unraveling the genetic basis of such complex traits is one of the most challenging fields of modern biology in the 21st century and probably the key to ameliorating the quality of our everyday life improving, for example, crop yield and expanding the horizons of personalized therapy.

Research area:

I graduated from the University of Lausanne in February 2015 with a master in Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics. This project was aimed at investigating the long term effect of polyploidy on transposable element activity, using as models the polyploid Brassica napus and its two diploid parents B. rapa and B. oleracea.

Currently I am investigating the role of whole genome doubling in adaptation to divergent environments and how recurrent polyploidy can lead to evolutionary diversification and biodiversity increase. The study takes advantage of natural replicates provided by several ecologically-divergent, sibling Dactylorhiza allopolyploids of different ages. My aim is to integrate transcriptomic and low-coverage whole genome sequencing with complementary environmental data, to track molecular responses to polyploidy and how selection acts on them to result in adaptation.
