Lene Rostgaard Nielsen

Associate Professor

My background is in population genetics and since 2006 my main focus area has been on genetic aspects of emerging infectious diseases on their host tree species (Fraxinus and Ulmus). The research is experimentally based and molecular markers are used to evaluate ecological and evolutionary hypotheses. My recent work is based on NGS data (RAD-seq, RNA-seq, and metabarcoding analysis).

Key areas of nterest: Conservation genetics and genomics, Host-pathogen interactions, Evolutionary processes
