Environmental Genomics Lab

The Environmental Genomics group is a joint initiative between the Max Planck Society, the Christian-Albrechts University of Kiel and the State of Schleswig-Holstein. The group is headed by Eva H Stukenbrock and consists of two teams, one working at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön and the other at the Botanical Institute of the University of Kiel.

Research in the group focuses on different aspects of fungal evolution. The group integrates experimental, molecular and computational approaches to study adaptation and population genetics in plant pathogenic fungi and plant-associated microbes.
