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 Department of Evolution, Ecology and Behaviour at the University of Liverpool
Department of Evolution, Ecology and Behaviour in the Institute of Infection, Veterinary, and Ecological Sciences lies at the heart of a thriving biomedical science campus in Liverpool. The department is 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 26 Principal Investigators across a wide diversity of topics in evolution and ecology.
