Antoine KREMER

INRA, France – Population and quantitative genetics

His main research interests address the evolution of genetic diversity and differentiation between natural populations in trees, at various hierarchical levels where diversity is expressed (from genes to phenotypic traits). His research combines theoretical and experimental approaches. An important goal is to gather population data at various spatial and geographic scales to describe and dissect population differentiation, and to depict general distribution patterns. These data are then compared to theoretical predictions obtained by analytical derivations or simulations, where various different evolutionary scenarios are tested.

Antoine Kremer is senior scientist at INRA Bordeaux (France). He is co-director of the cluster of excellence COTE. He received his phD in quantitative genetics and habilitation degree in population genetics at the University of Paris (Orsay). His research deals with the evolution of genetic diversity and differentiation between natural tree populations, at various hierarchical levels where diversity is expressed (from genes to phenotypic traits). Antoine Kremer initiated Europe-wide forestry research as early as the 1980s based on population genetics and evolutionary biology. His research has focused on the evolution of oaks across Europe, investigated by complementary approaches  including  paleobotany,  population genetics and computer simulations. His current interest addresses future evolution in the context of environmental changes, using microevolutionary approaches by linking genetics, genomics and ecology.
