Posted at 22:28h in Slider
A main interest of my lab is in the processes that determine genome content, structure and change. To what extent do the primary forces of evolution (recombination, effective population size, mutation and natural selection) cause differences in genome content between different taxa and lineages of life. I explore these topics by comparative phylogenetic analysis of genome content and evolution, and by genome sequencing of carefully selected taxa.
