Project Details


Evolution has shaped life as we know it. Our research uses theoretical, computational and experimental approaches to understand and predict the structure and behaviour of biological systems and their evolution as environments change, organisms mutate and natural and sexual selection occurs.

To the right are links to the research pages of academics working in this area. Many of us are also part of the research domain in 'Evolution and Genomic Science' which is linked below. If you are interested in joining us, PhD and other opportunities currently available are listed on individual researchers' pages (typically under the 'opportunities' tab).
