  • Desai Lab

    Evolutionary Dynamics and Population Genetics Natural selection and other evolutionary forces lead to particular patterns of evolutionary dynamics, and they leave characteristic signatures on the genetic variation within populations. We use a combination of theory and experiments to study the...

  • Lawley Lab

    Lawley Lab are covered with a complex microbial community, known as our microbiota, which plays important roles in our physiology, immunity, metabolism and sustenance. Within the human gastrointestinal tract alone there are over 1,000 bacterial species, which amounts to approximately 10 times mor...

  • The Kingsley Lab

    The Molecular Basis of Vertebrate Evolution. Naturally occurring species show spectacular differences in morphology, physiology, behavior, disease susceptibility, and life span. Although the genomes of many organisms have now been completely sequenced, Kingsley lab still know relatively little ab...

  • Przeworski lab

    Genetic differences among individuals reflect the combined effects of mutation, recombination, population history and natural selection. As a result, studies of natural variation can provide important insights into evolutionary and genetic mechanisms: as examples, DNA sequence conservation among ...

  • Radka Reifová Lab

    We are generally interested in the mechanisms of species origin from a molecular and ecological perspective. Particularly, we are interested in the role of sex chromosomes in speciation. Most of our research is done on birds and mammals. Currently, we focus our research on two hybridizing song bi...
