Daniel Tamarit joins Ettema-lab

Starting October Ettema-lab welcomes Daniel Tamarit as its newest Postdoc.

Daniel defended his PhD one year ago at Siv Andersson’s lab (UU), studying genome evolution in host-associated bacteria. Since then, he has performed evolutionary analyses on a bacterial gene transfer system evolved from domesticated bacteriophages, and on the architecture of bacterial chromosomes. Starting this week, as an integral part of the Ettema-lab, he will undertake research questions related to the evolution of unexplored lineages and the origin of eukaryotic genes.

Welcome to the group Dani!
