Systematics and phylogeography of neotropical fig wasps (Agaonidae)


In this event, Dr. Jean Yves Rasplus will work on a research project about phylogeography of Neotropical fig trees and fig wasps, which we are starting in collaboration. Specifically, Dr. Rasplus will contribute with knowledge transfer and support for the obtention of molecular data with New Generation Sequencing (NGS) methods. At the first two weeks we will have meetings to discuss our project and to learn how to build NGS libraries. In addition, we will discuss our current project on taxonomy and systematics of Neotropical fig wasps. Dr. Rasplus will give a speech for the two postgraduate programs in my institution (PG in Entomology and PG in Comparative Biology). During his visit, Dr. Rasplus will figure out as examiner on the thesis defense of my PhD student Fernando Farache and will join us in field excursions and discussion sections with my postgraduate students.
