What is current in research in different fields of science? What will be the next breakthrough? Welcome to the Professorien tervetuliaisluennot - Inaugural lectures on Wednesday 29 November. Craig Primmer is a professor in genomics in the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences and the Institute of Biotechnology. The aim of his research is to understand which genes are important for allowing species living in the wild to adapt to their local conditions and how they respond to changes in those conditions. His research group studies salmon populations. The work is a mix of ecology, evolutionary biology and molecular genetics.
