master thesis – publication

The larger project my master’s thesis was a part of has been submitted and can be found in pre-press here: Foerster et al. 2017

Population Genomics of marine Mammals

Finally, It is happening! I have now a job position as PhD student at the University of Potsdam. It’s all about population genomics of marine mammals. It could not be better ! So in the next three years I will focus myself on the marine mammals and all that comes with population genomics. I’m looking forward to it 🙂
