The Slotte lab is located at the Science for Life Laboratory, a center for genomics research in Sweden, and is part of the Dept. of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University, since April 2014.
We are interested in understanding what factors govern how genetic variation is distributed across plant genomes, and how this results in phenotypic diversity within and among plant species. We are especially interested in the evolutionary consequences of plant mating system shifts.
Our work often involves analyses and simulations of large-scale population genomic and gene expression data sets, but we also use classical genetic mapping techniques and conduct experimental plant work in the greenhouse and field. Currently, the main focus is on evolutionary processes in the Brassicaceae, but we are open to exploring other systems.
