A PhD student position is available for 4 years at the Department of Biology and Ecology, Faculty of Science, University of Ostrava, Czech Republic. There are ongoing projects in two different fields: protist genomics or genetic anthropology.
In this work, we present reisolation and redescription of Balantidium duodeni Stein, 1867 from the European common brown frog Rana temporaria Linnaeus, 1758 using light and electron microscopy. This species has a unique morphological feature—its cells are flattened along the dorsoventral axis. Celý příspěvek
A case of taxonomic inflation in coccoid algae: Ellipsoidion parvum and Neocystis vischeri are conspecific with Neocystis (=Nephrodiella) brevis (Chlorophyta, Trebouxiophyceae)
Determining the actual phylogenetic diversity of unicellular coccoid algae, and developing a biologically appropriate classification system for them, pose challenges. We studied the phylogenetic and morphological diversity of a series of algal strains identified as Nephrodiella spp., Ellipsoidion parvum, and Neocystis spp. Celý příspěvek
