Evolutionary Genetics and Genomics

Understanding the evolution of diversity in animal genomes

evol gen smallEvolutionary genetics aims to understand the diversity of life from a genetic perspective, using DNA sequences to study population history and evolution. Increasingly, this involves studies of complete genomes, offering exciting new opportunities to apply a wealth of data in order to address long-standing questions in evolutionary biology. This field has important implications for human welfare, and our department has expertise in the study of human pathogens, notably influenza, as well as addressing fundamental research questions.
