Aurélien Tellier

I am interested in the evolution of plants. I focus on combining theoretical approaches of population genetics and ecology with the use of new sequencing technologies, for studying 1) the evolution and consequences of seed banks, 2) plant-pathogen coevolution, 3) plant genome evolution and domestication.
