Human Evolution Interest

We develop statistical models of DNA or protein evolution to be used in reconstructing species phylogenies and in understanding the mechanisms of molecular sequence evolution. We make extensive use of maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods, as well as computer simulation. Real data analysis is also a major undertaking in the group, with detection of adaptive molecular evolution and comparative genomics to be the current focus. Those serves as the motivation for the theoretical work.
