Short description of project activities:
During this PhD study, I will focus on the “Genetic Structure of the bank vole, Myodes glareolus and of one of its specific pathogens, the Puumala hantavirus, based on a genetic and phenotypic multi-marker approach in Fennoscandinavia”. The aim is to better understand the hybridisation process at the fennoscandinavian contact zones between distinct lineages of Myodes glareolus by developing a multi-marker approach (cytochrome b, microsatellites, autosomal and sex-linked genes, RAD-sequencing, S-fragment of the hantavirus genetic background etc.).
