Understanding the evolution of diverse mating systems in plants and algae

Our lab seeks to understand the mechanisms and processes of adaptive traits, particularly focusing on (but not limited to) mating system evolution of flowering plants. A powerful tool to address the mechanism of adaptive evolution is the genomic information at the population and species levels, which has recently become available easily thanks to the development of sequencing technologies. We are using various model and “non-model” organisms including Arabidopsis thaliana, Petunia and green algae, Closterium, by utilizing interdisciplinary approaches, ranging from population genetic analysis, lab experiments and field works.
