Research Projects 2017 - 2020

In Phase 2 (2017 - 2020), the URPP Evolution will continue and strengthen its efforts to integrate a traditionally disparate community with an interest in evolutionary questions and in molecular approaches relying on rapidly developing next-generation sequencing and analysis methods, respectively. The aim was to fund highly original projects that involve interdisciplinary collaboration between research groups and that rely on novel, innovative approaches.

The 15 projects of Phase 2 of the URPP Evolution can be grouped into the following six main topics:

Adaptation

Pathogen Evolution

Microbiology and Virology

Polyploidy

Language Evolution

Theoretical Evolutionary Biology
