Dr Levi Yant
Professor in Evolutionary Genomics
Phone: +44 (0)796 673 1125
Levi's research is focused on wild plant populations to understand how evolution finds solutions to significant environmental and physiological challenges. Dr Yant uses innovative population genomic approaches to identify changes specific to adapted populations. This reveals candidate genes and process mediating adaption.
Dr Yant completed his PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology, pioneering the application of genome-scale technologies to plants, in order to understand the molecular control of flowering time. While a postdoc at Harvard, Dr Yant focused on evolution and population genomics to understand the molecular basis of adaption.
