GTF Archive


Welcome to Amaury!

Hi everyone,

I’m Amaury, and I will be joining the bioinformatics group at the GTF for the next 6 months.
I completed my bachelor and masters in ecology and evolution in France. Then I did my PhD and a one-year postdoc with Michel Chapuisat, here at the UNIL where I worked on the genomic basis of queen number variation in ants.


Thur Feb 7-Fri Feb 8, 2019 – Lausanne Genomics Days 2019

Lausanne Genomics Days 2019
