Research in our laboratory addresses some key questions in evolutionary biology mainly using genomic and bioinformatic approaches. This includes understanding how genomes diverge as populations and species differentiate, which we study using Ficedula flycatchers as model system (e.g. Ellegren et al 2012 Nature 491:756-760). We also study how mutation, selection and recombination mould DNA sequence evolution, with recent focus on the process of GC-biased gene conversion. Moreover, we are interested in sex chromosome evolution and sex-biased gene expression.
