Reef Genomics Lab

Our research uses a broad range of tools (genetics, genomics, bioinformatics, ecology, microbiology) to study marine ecosystems, how they are structured, how their members interact, and how they are influenced by (large-scale) physical processes. We are interested in the genes in ecology and the ecology in genes: How do genes shape genera, shape the biological, physical, and chemical reality? In the very essence of the word, this is a true eco-systems biology and environmental genomics approach.
