TREEMUTATION – Mutation in the tropical tree canopy.

Presentation of the project

The main objective is to examine the accumulation of somatic mutations in tropical tree tissues through the light gradient of the canopy to test the hypothesis that more exposed tissues have a higher somatic mutation rate. Additionally, we propose to assess the evolutionary significance of somatic mutations by investigating their transmission to offspring, and to examine the genomic underpinnings of any differences in somatic mutation processes between species.
