including systematics, biogeography, evolutionary biology, ecology and population
genetics. Andre Moura research group is part of the Laboratory of the Molecular
and Biometric Techniques led by Prof. Wieslaw Bogdanowicz, grouping researchers
focused on population genetics, phylogeography and evolutionary genomics of a
broad range of animal taxa. MIZ laboratories contain modern equipment for
genomic analyses, including Pacific Biosciences RSII long-read sequencer and Illumina
MiSeq System. The state-of-the-art ancient DNA laboratory carries out work on
mammalian palaeogenetics. The Museum zoological collection is among the largest
and most valuable in Europe.</span></p></div></div></div></div><div id="x95959507963145a"><blockquote cite="em413dc44b-8fbd-4dc8-91b5-b8efed67b4b9@desktop-491kstb" type="cite" class="cite2">
