Two new PhD students join the ConvergeAnt project
Updated: Apr 13
We are pleased to welcome back Sophie Teullet and Mathilde Barthe both starting their PhD within the ConvergeAnt project for the next three years. For her PhD, Sophie will follow-up from her Master degree investigating dietary adaptations in the genomes of ant-eating mammals but will also explore the functional potential of their gut microbiomes for insect digestion. Mathilde secured a PhD grant from the Center for the Study of Biodiversity in Amazonia (CEBA) to work on detecting convergent evolution and studying species delimitation using xenarthran genomes.
