AnotationThe project unites work of two laboratories of the Life Science Research Centre at the University of Ostrava (doc. Elias and prof. Yurchenko). In essence, we will analyze evolution and virulence of representatives of several protist groups. Work in prof. Yurchenko's lab is focused on different aspects of trypanosomatid biology, while doc. Elias studies protist evolution on both phylogenomics and functional genomics levels.
