Publication in Scientific Reports authored by members of our Institute: T-cell receptor (TCR) repertoire profiling in non-model species using high-throughput sequencing

High-throughput sequencing (HTS) prompted development of novel, refined methods of analyzing immunological repertoires (e.g. immunoglobulins, TCRs). So far, despite a decade of progress, these techniques were mainly used in research involving model species and humans. Recently, Magdalena Migalska, Alvaro Sebastian and Jacek Radwan (Evolutionary Biology Group) published an article in Scientific Reports describing first use of HTS in TCR repertoire sequencing [...]

Publication in Journal of Ecology

New study describing how apparent predation occurring between two sympatric oaks influence their recruitment rates was just published in Journal of Ecology. The Authors (Michał Bogdziewicz, Nathanael Lichti, Rafał Zwolak) wrote a short summary of their work: Numerous plants are dispersed by scatterhoarding animals such as corvids and rodents. These animals carry away and cache [...]

Media about the research conducted in our Institute

Polish Press Agency, The Polish Society for the Protection of Birds, and  Journal of Animal Ecology write about research of cooperative team of Population Ecology Lab and Charles University in Prague. The research is about avoiding competition in sibling species of birds. http://naukawpolsce.pap.pl/aktualnosci/news,28896,konkurencja-w-stylu-slowika.html https://otop.org.pl/2018/03/22/mechanizmy-unikania-konkurencji-u-blisko-spokrewnionych-gatunkow-mppl/ https://journalofanimalecology.wordpress.com/2018/03/21/how-do-birds-avoid-their-sibling-species-competitors/
