Evolutionary Genetics includes both shorter-term processes relating to the way genes behave in populations (influenced by natural selection, genetic drift, mutation and migration), and the longer-term evolutionary effects of these processes.

We are particularly interested in the evolutionary information contained in gene sequences found in related species and what they say about these processes. We ask how selection modifies behavioural, morphological and ecological adaptations, and what we can learn from studying hybridisation between species.
