We are applying sensitive DNA barcoding approaches to understand host parasitoid interactions in agricultural systems. We are now able to screen the host species of parasitoid wasps (e.g. aphids) for the presence of parasitoid DNA using rapid PCR techniques. These studies allow a different way...

  The enormous quantities of genomic data now available permit us to powerfully test hypothese of molecular evolution. Perhaps because of ¬†the amount of data available comparative analysis of whole genomes is also challenging.We have developed a range of bioinformatic pipelines to facilitate our studies and...

  Root Knot Nematodes of the genus¬†Meloidogyne are some of the world's most important crop pathogens. The genus contains a wide range of reproductive modes, with repeated transitions between them. This raises interesting possibilities to investigate the genomic consequences of the loss of meiotic recombination. I...

  We are studying gene copy number variation (CNV) in adaptive radiations of cichlids. A fundamental question in biology is what type of genomic changes underlie local adaptation and species radiations. Cichlid fish radiations in the African Great Lakes show extraordinary levels of speciation and ecological...
