Studying chromosomal inversion to learn more about ecological adaptation
Despite the great progress in evolutionary biology research, the inversion polymorphisms related to local adaptation remain an unexplored field. Using the Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus) as a case study, the EU-funded INVERT2ADAPT project will investigate the mechanisms behind the local adaptation based on chromosomal inversions. To achieve this, INVERT2ADAPT will use a series of diverse tools such as comparative genomics, phylogenomics, population genomics, gene expression and functional genomics. The project aspires to contribute to better understand the interactions between genotype, phenotype and environment and the role of the structural variation in the adaptation in natural populations.
