About the Moyle Lab
We study the genetics and genomics of adaptation and speciation, and the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms that create new trait variation and new species. By using diverse approaches and both model and non-model organisms, we aim to dissect the complex processes that collectively contribute to speciation, including the major drivers of speciation, and the genetic architecture, genes, and specific mutations that underlie this process. Read more about our research here.
Within the common themes of adaptation and speciation, members of the lab work on topics ranging from the molecular mechanisms of species recognition through to the ecology and genetics of environmental adaptation. Read more about our group members here.
