Dr. Jens Bast

My research focuses on genomic consequences of asexual reproduction. More specifically, I investigate the fate of transposable elements in sexual and asexual animals and additionally how these elements may play a role in speciation events. Moreover, I am interested in the role of mito-nuclear interactions for the evolution of (a)sex. Further, I like to incorporate ecological factors, such as resources, into evolutionary investigations of reproductive modes.
