Population Genetics Research Group works on threatened and endangered insect species (mostly butterflies). Members of the group study the genetic diversity on different levels. First of all we investigate enzyme polymorphism by polyakrylamide gel electrophoresis. In addition we analyse morphologic variability of wings and genital organs using the toolbar of traditional and geometric morphometry. The Research Group is planning to do DNA studies in the near future.
