The Ingvarsson research group is focused on understanding what factors govern the distribution of genetic variation across plant genomes, and how this drives phenotypic variation in traits that are of adaptive or economic importance. We mainly rely on computational analyses of large-scale DNA sequencing data sets but also use data on gene expression and traditional genetic mapping in combination with field and greenhouse experiments. We are especially interested in understanding the genetic architecture of adaptation, the relative importance of factors driving genome-wide variation in genetic diversity and how differen types of genomics data can be incorporated into plant breeding programs.
