NEW APPROACHES TO UNDERSTANDING EVOLUTION BY BRIDGING SYNTHETIC, SYSTEMS, & EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY
Experimental microbial evolution
Our research focuses on five areas: experimental evolution, population genetics, synthetic and evolutionary systems biology, and statistical phylogenetics/genomics. We work primarily on microbial species, although bigger creatures have occasionally crept into the mix.
We are an international group of scientists with members coming from 7 different countries and scientific backgrounds, including mathematics, statistics, biology, physics, and theoretical ecology.
ABOUT the Institute of Intergative Biology at the
University of Liverpool
The Institute of Integrative Biology lies at the heart of a thriving biomedical science campus in Liverpool. Based primarily in the Biosciences Building with additional sites at Leahurst and Ness Gardens, we provide one of the most vibrant and integrated biosciences environments in the UK. The Institute comprises 220 staff (including 75 Principal Investigators) and 150 postgraduate students.
