Claire Morandin

Person

Description of research and teaching

I am a postdoctoral researcher and I study the evolution and maintenance of female castes (queen and worker) in ants. I use genomics tools such as RNA sequencing, comparative genomics, evolutionary analysis, gene co-expression networks and methylation in collaboration with colleagues in Japan and Denmark.
