Dr. Wolfgang Arthofer
I am a molecular ecologist with research experience in several groups of organisms, including insects, woody plants and fungi. Recent developments in molecular genetics offer us powerful tools to assess evolutionary history and current developmental trends of populations, species and ecosystems, and my aim is to utilize these tools to answer biological questions. I enjoy working at an interface between organismic and molecular biology, genetics, symbiosis research and computational data analysis.
