My lab is part of the University of Hull Evolutionary Biology Group and investigates problems in evolutionary genetics using DNA and bioinformatic technologies. I’m interested in comparative genomics, large scale phylogenetics and molecular evolution. I’m particularly interested in the way in which the evolutionary forces of recombination, selection, mutation and drift influence genomic content. We also work on projects using phylogenetics and DNA barcoding to better understand biodiversity and the speciation process.
Like any group photo several people are missing of course. Details of other academics’ research labs and projects can be found at the Department of Biological Sciences website.
