leader of the team
Vláďa is the head of evolutionary protistology lab. He is interested in eukaryotic phylogeny, evolution of anaerobes, evolution of euglenid secondary plastid, lateral gene transfer, taxonomy and phylogeny of parabasalids, oxymonads and fornicates.
Lucia joined the team in 2016. (more info will be added soon)
Štěpánka started her PhD in 2011, she focuses on the evolution of euglenid plastid genomes.
Vojta started his PhD studies in 2011 and he focuses on the mitochondrial homologue and the synthesis of iron sulphur clusters in oxymonads.
Lukáš joined the team in 2009 and he focuses on genomics and the function of mitochondrial organelle in Trimastix pyriformis.
Petr joined the team in 2009 and he focuses on the gene transfers into the nuclear genomes of euglenids.
Sebastian Cristian Treitli
Sebastian joined the team in 2013 and he focuses on the genomics and cell biology of oxymonads.
Anna joined the team in 2010. Their primary interest is the proteomics of euglenid plastid and its protein import and targeting.
