Rosling Group: Ecology and evolution in soil fungi
Get acquainted with our ongoing research.
We conduct research in the field of molecular ecology and evolution, working mostly with root-associated fungal communities and their adaptation to soil biogeochemistry and plant host. When Dr Ylva Strid joined our group as an independent post doc in 2015 she brought with her an interest in fungal beetle interactions, which added an above ground dimension to the group. Together we conduct field and experimental work using community metabarcoding and comparative genomics to address adaptation to host and substrate in symbiotic fungi. In 2016 we initiated research on AM fungal genomics within an ERC funded research program. Two PhD students and one post doc currently work in the project studying genome organization and symbiotic efficiency of AM fungi interacting with diverge hosts.
We are also members of the The Linnean Centre of Plant Biology in Uppsala.
