Lohse Lab

We study speciation, natural selection, and recombination using genomes from wild populations of insects via the development and implementation of novel computational methods.


Aug 2022 - Come speak to us at ESEB in Prague!

    • Konrad, Alex, and Sam will be presenting talks and posters on inferring the history of speciation in European butterflies with examples investigating chromosome rearrangements and sex-biased gene expression.

    • Derek will be presenting a method for the inference of crossover and gene conversion rates from individual genomes.
