Simon Stenberg from CIGENE, defended his thesis entitled “Epigenetic and genetic adaptation in experimental yeast populations” Friday 12th April.
The thesis of Stenberg is focused on rapid clonal adaptation. Using experimental evolution on yeast populations, he found fast adaptation to superoxide driven by mitochondrial genome degradation. The experimental work was carried out at the University of Gothenburg, Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology.
