Research interest
Hybrid vigor occurrence also known as heterosis in wild and wild-derived house mouse western and eastern subspecies (Mus musculus musculus and Mus musculus domesticus). Eimeria falciformis and Eimeria ferrisi infections of inbred, outbred and hybrid mice. Immune profiling of said mice and dissection of protection mechanisms.
