Specialties of Felix Gugerli:
Application of molecular markers to study population processes in space and time

Adaptation of plant populations to environmental variation (landscape genomics)
Organisms may cope with environmental change by either reacting, adapting, migrating, or going extinct. To understand these optional processes, we study genetic variation in association to variation in ecological factors to identify genes under selective pressure. The ultimate goal of our studies is to elucidate gene flow of adaptive gene variants in a landscape context.
