General

  • Mission:
  • Biom|ics group seeks to understand the causes behind the spatial distribution of genetic and phenotypic variation in tropical organisms. We study processes at various hierarchical scales, from local adaptation and initial population divergence to interspecific phylogeny and the formation of communities. We want to integrate organismal biology and ecology with evolutionary genetic approaches, such as population genetics, phylogeography, molecular systematics and molecular evolution in order to understand the origins of biodiversity.

    Each group member has its own approach, thus trying to integrate different perspectives in order to face fundamental questions in the evolution of biodiversity.

  • History:
  • Biomics Lab was founded by our Director and supervisor Dr. Andrew Crawford. First, the Lab had only few members. Over time more students began to enroll and develop research projects. Nowadays the Lab has 15 members. Each member working in his/her own research question and projects.
