Research Group Evolutionary Genetics of Fishes
The group is interested in the evolution of fish species. Although we are applying mostly genetic methods our higher level goals are to understand the organism in its environment. We are studying natural hybridization of fish species in nature and in the lab in order to identify the genetic basis for differences between species. We have a particular interest in how hybridization may actually enhance evolution of new species.
