(2019-02-26) – Two new papers out

Two papers that we have been involved in are now out, one in Nature Ecology and Evolution, and one in eLife. Congratulations to all coauthors!

(2019-01-12) – Lab manager position open

We have an open position for a lab manager to join our team. For more information, see https://tanjaslottelab.se/join-the-lab/ 

(2018-12-18) – Paper accepted!

Robert’s second first-authored paper investigating the impact of gene-body methylation on gene expression noise using single-cell expression data from Arabidopsis is now accepted in Heredity. Congrats to all coauthors!

Horvath R, Laenen B, Takuno S, Slotte T. 2018. Single cell expression noise and gene-body methylation in Arabidopsis thalianaHeredity. Accepted.

(2018-11-15) – Welcome William Hughes, new postdoc in the lab!

Today Dr. William Hughes is starting his new position as a postdoctoral researcher in the Slotte lab. Welcome William!

(2018-09-24) – New preprint on bioRxiv

Our preprint entitled “Genetic basis and timing of a major mating system shift in Capsella” is now on bioRxiv. In this study, we combine long-read sequencing of the S-locus, genetic mapping and genomic analyses to investigate the genetic basis of a dominant loss of self-incompatibility in C. orientalis.
