Microsatellite variation, sexual reproduction and taxonomic revision of Taraxacum sect. Dioszegia: relationships at a large spatial scale

Submitted by vojta on Mon, 04/13/2015 - 14:42

Taraxacum serotinumThe coexistence of agamospermy and sexuality characterizes most of the ~60 sections of the genus Taraxacum. Section Dioszegia, comprising T. serotinum and its allies, are an exception because only sexuals are reported for all the members of this group.

Structure, R and Linux

Structure is very popular software for revealing population structure. Here I describe easy workflow how to run independent runs of Structure in parallel to speed up whole process using statistical software R and how to facilitate use of CLUMPP and distruct with easy BASH scripts.

Arlequin and R under Linux

Arlequin is very popular tool for population genetics and in recent version (3.5) it has version running on Linux (arlecore, only computational core without GUI) as well as possibility to parse output using R statistical language. Those two features are described only briefly in official manual. I faced some issues when running Arlequin on Linux and parsing output using R. I'm describing here my solutions in case someone else would hava similar needs and problems.

Conferention Plant Population Biology 2008

Submitted by vojta on Wed, 05/07/2008 - 17:30

May 1 to 3 2008 I was on conferention Plant Population Biology for the coming decade (21th Annual Conference of the Plant Population Biology Section of the Ecological Society of Germany, Switzerland and Austria (GfÖ), Organized by the Department of Population Biology, Musée national d'histoire naturelle). I presented my poster about preliminary result of phylogeography of Nuphar lutea (yellow water lily) in Czechia.

Bachelor thesis

In my bachelor thesis I present temporal pieces of knowledge on phytogeography, and especially molecular phylogeography of water clonal plants and possibilities of their dispersion. Plenty of questions about history, dispersal, relationship and population structure we can not answer without molecular technologies at all. Another very important components influencing dispersal of plants and animals are their ecology and physiology.
