We are delighted to welcome Professor Troy Day from Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada who will be joining our discussion group.

Troy will give a brief presentation about “The evolutionary advantages of haploid versus diploid microbes in nutrient poor environments”. Troy will talk about the nutrient limitation hypothesis and how theoretical predictions compare with empirical observations.

Postdocs Martino Malerba and Giulia Ghedini will also be giving short presentations about their latest research on artificial selection and energy budgets of phytoplankton and invertebrates.

Presentations will be followed by general discussion and we invite you to join us for this discussion.
