Genomic signatures of local adaptation to the degree of environmental predictability in rotifers (2018)
Journal Article
Franch-Gras, L., Hahn, C., García-Roger, E. M., Carmona, M. J., Serra, M., & Gómez, A. (2018). Genomic signatures of local adaptation to the degree of environmental predictability in rotifers. Scientific reports, 8(1), doi:10.1038/s41598-018-34188-y

Environmental fuctuations are ubiquitous and thus essential for the study of adaptation. Despite this, genome evolution in response to environmental fuctuations —and more specifcally to the degree of environmental predictability– is still unknown. Sa... Read More

Detecting host-parasitoid interactions in an invasive Lepidopteran using nested tagging DNA metabarcoding (2018)
Journal Article
Kitson, J. J. N., Hahn, C., Sands, R. J., Straw, N. A., Evans, D. M., & Lunt, D. H. (2019). Detecting host-parasitoid interactions in an invasive Lepidopteran using nested tagging DNA metabarcoding. Molecular ecology, 28(2), 471-483. doi:10.1111/mec.14518

Determining the host-parasitoid interactions and parasitism rates for invasive species entering novel environments is an important first step in assessing potential routes for biocontrol and integrated pest management. Conventional insect rearing tec... Read More

Environmental DNA metabarcoding of lake fish communities reflects long-term data from established survey methods (2016)
Journal Article
Hahn, C., Blackman, R. C., Hänfling, B., Lawson Handley, L., Li, J., Nichols, P., …Winfield, I. J. (2016). Environmental DNA metabarcoding of lake fish communities reflects long-term data from established survey methods. Molecular ecology, 25(13), (3101-3119). doi:10.1111/mec.13660. ISSN 0962-1083

Organisms continuously release DNA into their environments via shed cells, excreta, gametes and decaying material. Analysis of this ‘environmental DNA’ (eDNA) is revolutionizing biodiversity monitoring. eDNA outperforms many established survey method... Read More

Draft genome sequence of the Streptococcus pneumoniae Avery strain A66 (2015)
Journal Article
Hahn, C., Harrison, E. M., Parkhill, J., Holmes, M. A., & Paterson, G. K. (2018). Draft genome sequence of the Streptococcus pneumoniae Avery strain A66. Genome announcements, 3(3), (e00697-15). doi:10.1128/genomeA.00697-15. ISSN 2169-8287

We have used HiSeq 2000 technology to generate a draft genome sequence of Streptococcus pneumoniae strain A66. This is a common study strain used in investigations of pneumococcal bacterium-host interactions and was used in the seminal genetic studie... Read More
