Ecology & Evolutionary Biology

Explore the evolution and interaction of genomes of diverse organisms that play significant roles in environmental biology and human health. Participate in a dynamic research program that integrates the powerful tools of genome science, molecular phylogenetics, and molecular ecology to advance our understanding of how living organisms are related to each other, to provide the tools to quantify and assess biodiversity, and to identify genes and underlying mechanisms of biomedical importance. Projects span all evolutionary time scales, ranging from deep phylogenetic divergence of ancient eukaryotic and prokaryotic lineages, to ecological analyses of how members of diverse communities contribute and respond to environmental change.

Work with scientists in these laboratories at the MBL:

Ecosystems Center

Josephine Bay Paul Center for Comparative Molecular Biology and Evolution

Cellular Dynamics Program

Program in Sensory Physiology and Behavior
