Project: Evolution of the siphonous green algae (Bryopsidales)

project duration
15-DEC-06 – 14-JUL-07
abstract
The goal of this project is to unravel the evolutionary history of siphonous green algae using molecular techniques. The two key questions are: (1) How, where and when did morphologically complex siphonous algae evolve from simpler ones? (2) What is the phylogenetic informativeness of different DNA markers used in green algal phylogenetics.
