Welcome to Plant Speciation Genetics Research home page!

In September this year I have started a new project, funded by the Finnish Research Council, on speciation genetics of outcrossing relatives of Arabidopsis thaliana. The title of my research plan is “Understanding forces driving development of postzygotic reproductive isolation in Arabidopsis lyrata“, but I plan to use also A. halleri and A. arenosa, depending on how well I will manage to produce hybrids between these species. Currently I have between population hybrids of A. lyrata growing in one of the greenhouse compartments of University of Helsinki. This is a home page of this project, where I will update recent progress or other Arabidopsis or speciation related posts.
