PROJECTS

Flagship projects

ADAPTATION HOLOGENOMICS

Aims to generate paired genomic and metagenomic data of animal populations living in the Northern and Southern edges of the species' distribution to understand the hologenomic means of adaptation to climate change in expanding and contracting zones.
Coordinator: University of Exeter
Funding: Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) & Carlsberg Foundation
Period: 2021-2024

CONVERGENCE HOLOGENOMICS

Aims to generate population-level paired genomic and metagenomic data of paired marsupial and placental species with similar ecological characteristics, to understand the impact of animal-microbiota interactions in the evolution of ecological features of mammals. 
Coordinator: University of Copenhagen
Funding: Carlsberg Foundation
Period: 2021-2024

SQUIRREL HOLOGENOMICS

Aims to generate population-level paired genomic and metagenomic data of Sciuris vulgaris and Sciurus carolinensis in sympatry and allopatry to gain insights into the competitive ecology and conservation of squirrels.
Coordinator: University of Copenhagen
Funding: Carlsberg Foundation and DNRF
Period: 2021-2024

ELEVATION HOLOGENOMICS

Aims to generate population-level paired genomic and metagenomic data of vertebrates across elevational gradients in various mountain ranges to understand the hologenomic underpinnings of adaptation to different climatic regimes.
Coordinator: University of Copenhagen & University of Lund
Funding: Carlsberg Foundation
Period: 2021-2024
