My group uses Next Generation Sequence (NGS) data to address evolutionary questions that are relevant to conservation biology, host parasite co-evolution and adaptation to changing environments. We are working on various organisms, including fish (guppies, cichlids and salmon), birds (the pink pigeon and the echo parakeet), micro-algae (Skeletonema marinoi and Fragilariopsis cylindrus), and numerous pathogens and parasites (e.g. gyrodactylids, cryptosporidium, the oomycete Albugo candida and aphids). We are also developing novel software applications to analyse genome data.
