Starting in September 2021, I am doing my master thesis under the supervision of Inês Fragata and Vitor Sousa within the MITE2 and Evolutionary Genomics and Bioinformatics groups (cE3c). I will work with experimental evolving populations of a spider mite species (Tetranychus urticae) and, during this year, I aim to: (1) assess if populations can adapt to cadmium by analyzing changes in life-history traits through time; (2) identify genomic regions involved in adaptation to cadmium in the absence of gene flow; (3) compare genomic patterns of diversity and differentiation in regimes with and without migration; and (4) verify if the observed genomic patterns fit theoretical predictions, by simulating populations evolving according to the conditions used in experimental evolution.
