My group has a focus on genomics research of aspen, Norway spruce and Scots pine. We perform genome assembly, transcriptome and co-expression network analyses with a focus on understanding the genetic architecture of complex traits such as leaf shape variation, wood development and specialised metabolite production and the role of non-coding RNAs in regulation and genome function. As part of our work we use genome wide association studies and a systems genetics approach to link genomic variation to natural variation in phenotypes, including at all levels of the central dogma.

We are also interested in the interaction between host trees and associated microbial species. For this work we perform metagenomics and metatranscriptomics approaches, including the development of new fungal genomes and novel analysis approaches.
