AnotationThe current project unites three on-going research programs at the Life Science Research Centre, University of Ostrava led by doc. Vyacheslav Yurchenko, Ph.D., doc. Marek Eliáš, Ph.D., and Pavel Flegontov, Ph.D. It is focused on several fundamental questions of evolution, such as emergence of parasitism, evolutionary history of small GTPases, and anthropogenetics. A unique feature of this proposal is very wide coverage of the biological models (from viruses to humans) and experimental methods needed to address these essential questions.
