Evolutionary Biology

Evolutionary Biology

Evolutionary biology illuminates the processes that contributed to the diversity of Life on Earth. We use a combination of population genetics, genomics and phylogenomics to study how evolutionary processes generate and maintain genetic variation and phenotypic diversity among populations; how phenotypic diversity impacts reproductive success; how gene families and adaptive traits evolved; and how species diversified through evolutionary time.
