Molecular Evolution and Phylogenomics · Dept of Biology · Wake Forest University


Our research focuses on investigating genome-wide patterns of molecular evolution and complex evolutionary processes that underlie speciation, introgression, and adaptation.

class-header-connectivity
Phylogenomics: We are currently developing new models to dissect forces of introgression, duplication, and incomplete lineage sorting.
class-header-device
Software and Visualizations: The lab is innovating new tools to analyze and visualize phylogenomic datasets.
class-header-offline
Complex phylogenies: We are developing new methods and approaches to reveal events in the complex evolution histories of species radiation.
class-header-semantics
Andean-Amazonian Trees: We are involved in efforts to model adaptation among plant species groups that span the Andean-Amazonian transition zone.
class-header-css3
Plant Genomics: We are continuing to increase the number of available plant genomes, starting with North Carolina native plants like these Magnolia trees on the WFU campus.
