Dr Korjent van Dijk

University Tutor

School of Biological Sciences

Faculty of Sciences


At the University of Adelaide I am part of two research groups.

In Prof. Michelle Waycott research group I am leading research into population genetics and evolution of plants, and specialised seagrasses. I utilise molecular genetic techniques– traditional and NGS– to establish the relationship among species, populations and genetic individuals. In the recent years we have been developing Hybrid Capture methods to assess phylogenetic and phylogeographic relationships among plants using dozens of nuclear an plastid loci.

I am also part of Prof Andrew Lowe's timber tracking group. Here I develop forensically applicable genetic markers for the tracing of timber (legal and illegal). I am also responsible for the development of genetic resources that will be used in a large-scale pollination services project we are part of.
