Tom Gilbert

Center for Evolutionary Hologenomics, GLOBE Institute, University of Copenhagen

Tom Gilbert's group studies a range of different questions on speciation, adaptation, conservation and domestication of different species, using a combination of hologenomics, ancient DNA and metabarcoding technologies. For that they have been developing new methods to extract and analyse ancient DNA and metabarcoding data. Part of this work is also be applied to food industry to identify microbial interactions during the fermentation process. Tom Gilbert is the group leader of the Hologenomics group at the GLOBE Institute and Director of the Danish National Research Foundation Center for Evolutionary Hologenomics.

Josefa González

Institute of Evolutionary Biology, CSIC-UPF

Josefa González is a CSIC Scientist at IBE and her group focuses on understanding how organisms adapt to the environment. They use a broad range of omics approaches, including DNA-seq, RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq and HiC, to identify adaptive mutations that they further characterized using molecular and functional analyses. Josefa is the co-leader of the European Drosophila population genomics consortium (DrosEU) and she is currently a council member of the ESEB and the SMBE. Josefa's group is involved in science outreach, sharing their work with the general public and co-leading a citizen science initiative.

Katrina Lythgoe

Big Data Institute, University of Oxford

Katrina Lythgoe is a group leader at the Big Data Institute and her group focus on evolutionary epidemiology of viral infections. They use a combination of population genetics, modelling and genomic data analyses to study how evolutionary and ecological processes operate at different biological scales.
