Centre of Excellence in Evolutionary Research (2006-2011)
The Centre of Excellence in Evolutionary Research was funded by the Academy of Finland. It brought together a highly qualified and dynamic group of researchers studying the interactions between ecological and genetic factors during evolutionary processes. A common goal within the Centre was to develop evolutionary research into a predictive science that can be directed to problem solving in various applied disciplines. We used both quantitative and molecular methods in order to address evolutionary questions and place a strong emphasis on hypothesis testing with rigorous empirical data.
