Dr. Yassin will participate in the discussion of data analyses of research projects at doctoral level, developed by our research group as follows: *Populational structure of Drosophila sturtevanti and biodiversity of the drosophilids in areas of the Atlantic Forest and its use in conservation programs. Process FAPESP: 2014/14059-0 *Phylogeography of Drosophila sturtevanti in areas of the Atlantic Forest (Diptera: Drosophilidae).*Genetic variability and population structure of Drosophila sturtevanti in the Atlantic Forest biome.
