Evolutionary Genetics - EG

Molecular Ecology and Evolution

Specifically, the group aims to understand:

  • The micro-evolutionary processes and environmental factors shaping the amount and distribution of genetic diversity in wild animal species from terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments
  • How phenotypic plasticity is influenced by the genetic background and environmental variables that can be considered proxies of climate change. For this we are using freshwater fish as models and a multidisciplinary approach integrating genomics, gene expression, proteomics and physiology.
  • Sex determination and differentiation via large-scale transcriptome analysis in sexual diploid fish and in an allopolyploid complex with an intricate dynamics of reproduction, interaction and interdependency among distinct genomic compositions and gender forms.
  • The dynamics of diversification and speciation of homoploid hybrid species in dolphins
  • The molecular basis of olfaction in seabirds
