Ecological genomics is the use of genome level data sets to understand the ecology and evolution of an organism. In our research focus this area dovetails with evolutionary systems, but provides an empirical arm. Data acquisition ultimately requires some 'wet lab' modogenetics, but the majority of effort is in the in silico analysis. We are interested in particular in using this data type to find evidence of local adaptation in plant and animal species.
