Research Group Molecular Systems Evolution

Our research aims at understanding the evolution of genomes. By comparing genome sequences from various individuals and/or species, one can gain insights into the process of how and when species are created, a fundamental aspect of life and, therefore, of biology. In order to do so, we combine modeling approaches and statistical data analysis, as well as lab experiments when possible. Our research makes us wander in the fields of phylogenetics, population genomics and structural biology, as well as systems biology. In particular, we are interested in characterising stochastic processes at distinct levels of organization, in order to understand their role in evolution.
