People at The Department of Evolutionary Biology, January 2017

The Department of Evolutionary Biology runs a graduate research program in Evolutionary Genetics and we are also responsible for undergraduate education in genetics, genomics and molecular evolution for students in biology, biotechnology and bioinformatics.

Most of our research is done within our research groups, with expertise in evolutionary genetics and genomics, molecular archaeology, molecular ecology, molecular evolution and population genetics.

Our laboratories reside in new localities and are well-equipped with state-of-the art instruments for large scale DNA sequencing, microsatellite and SNP genotyping, expression analysis and ancient DNA work, which is shared among the research groups.
