Members of the Evolutionary Genomics Group combine diverse expertise in molecular analyses to study the evolutionary history of terrestrial and marine fauna and flora. Our research is aimed at strengthening conceptual, experimental, analytical and computational expertise in molecular ecology, conservation genetics, population genetics, phylogeography, comparative genomics and molecular phylogenetics. We have developed this focus area into a leading, internationally competitive, South African research initiative. The Group's research is enriched by its strong links with scientists in the USA, UK, Africa and Europe. Key features of our research include a multidisciplinary approach to problems using a wide array of techniques, flexibility in choice of research topics, and close interaction between students and staff.
