Population genomics Demographic history Speciation Freshwater fish Introgression

I am conducting a MSc in Evolutionary and Developmental Biology in the Evolutionary Genetics (EG) group of cE3c, under the supervision of Vítor Sousa and M. Manuela Coelho. My project is entitled “The Population Genomics of Squalius Species: A Genotyping by Sequencing Approach” and is focused on four freshwater fish species of the genus Squalius that inhabit Portuguese rivers. I am using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) spread across the genome to describe the relationship between these species as well as investigate the possible occurrence of introgression between them.
