Natural selection in structured populations
The DFG Reseach Unit FOR 1078 was approved in October 2008 (first period) and has been renewed in September 2011 with a duration of another three years.
The overarching goal of this Research Unit is the study of natural selection in natural populations. Because of its role as a driving force of adaptation, understanding natural selection is undoubtedly one of the most important objectives of evolutionary biology. A prerequisite for inferring selection is to improve our knowledge of the populations in which selection has occurred.
